first church missions

Be sure to read the 2017 Annual Report to learn about some of the mission work of First Church.


These include ministries like serving at the Cold Weather Overflow Shelter at the YWCA sheltering women and children, Shalom Partnership and its care and education for children, AARP Tax Ministry relieving people of anxieties around filing taxes, Discovery Corner Preschool which provides a safe, nurturing and learning environment for children, Lancaster Reentry Management Organization which helps people returning from prison to become productive members of society, Dorcas Kamanda and her work in Sierra Leone among orphans, Bluefields, Nicaragua and supoort of Betesda School, Sudan Rebirth Ministry and support for Tanzania. 


First Church seeks to connect people to Jesus Christ, grow disciples, and relieve suffering in the Lancaster community and throughout the world. These mission partnerships and connections help First Church to fulfill that mission.

Please pray for God’s leading and challenging opportunities in 2018. 

Blessings, FUMC Mission Team
