Missions in Action

At First UMC Sweetwater we take our role as the hands and feet of Christ seriously.  Our mission team is active in the local community, within the system of the United Methodist Church, and around the world through our support of UMCOR, conference advance specials, and missionaries that are connected to our congregation.

There are many ways in which you may participate.  Please begin in prayer! What is God’s role for your place in ministry?  

To learn more and participate in any of these current ministries and be made aware of the new opportunities that arise contact:

Vanessa Metzmeier (vmetz@bellsouth.net) or The Church Office 
We are still collecting donations for Santa‚Äôs Helper (the angel tree program). Due to COVID19, this year instead of selecting and shopping for a child, you may make a donation. Shoppers will then purchase the requested items for the children.  They plan to begin shopping November 6th, so please get your donations in as soon as possible to help these children have an enjoyable Christmas.




Our church is partnering with Sweetwater Elementary School in the Adopt-A-School program. We will be showing appreciation and support to the teachers and staff throughout the school year. If you are interested in helping, please contact our Miss Jacqueline, who is coordinating our efforts. Monetary gifts are appreciated to help us purchase items such as hand sanitizer, lip balm, snacks, etc.
