Youth at the Crossover
Please visit the new page to apply.
First United Methodist Church is accepting volunteers for our Youth program on Sunday nights from 5:30-7 pm as well as possible special events to work with students from the ages of 12-18. We have students from all 4 middle schools and both high schools who are usually from broken homes and have had brushes with Law Enforcement and/or CPS. Our students need attention, consistency, acceptance, and grace. Their behavior will not match up with usual expectations of Church kids. But they are so worthy, amazing students who just need opportunities and examples of how to serve, learn and love. Volunteers should be aware that while life changing impact is absolutely possible, change is slow.
About FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
202 BUTTERNUT ST, ABILENE, TX 79602, US
The United Methodist Church affirms that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Lord of all. As we make disciples, we respect persons of all religious faiths and we defend religious freedom for all persons. Jesus’ words in Matthew provide the Church with our mission: "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you" (28:19-20), and "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. . . . You must love your neighbor as you love yourself" (22:37, 39).
FUMC Youth is all about teaching our kids about being the best that they can be. We accomplish this by focusing on Serving others, Loving our Neighbors, and Growing as people. We like to have fun, we like to eat, and we like to learn about the bible. We are looking for volunteers that have a positive attitude, buckets of patience, and generally like to have a good time while teaching our kids how to be moral contributing members of society.
