Due to COVID-19 many of our ministries are not occurring at this time. As things change, we will update our calendar. Below is a list of just some of our ministries.
Check on our Calendar and Events tab under "More" to see what ministries and outreach opportunities are currently happening.
AGAPE MEETINGS - The 2nd Saturday of the month our Agape group meets at 12:00. This is a group that meets to have a time of fellowship and good food. They are currently not meeting due to COVID-19, but when they meet again, you are welcome to join.
CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES - Our Children's ministries provide our children with a loving atmosphere to learn about God. We have Children's Church during our services and several children's activities throughout the year. Currently, due to COVID-19, we do not have any active Children's ministries and no Children's Church.
MUSIC MINISTRY - Music is a central part of our worship at Interlachen. We have an adult choir which sings a variety of music to enhance our worship experience. We also sing a variety of songs ranging from the traditional hymns to the more contemporary praise songs during our services. There are no rehearsals currently.
QUILTING MINISTRY - Our quilting ministry, known as the Sew and Sews, meets once a week to make some beautiful quilts. These quilts are given to the Ronald McDonald House, Hospice, and other ministries. These quilts give comfort and a feeling of security to many. If you are not too good with crafts, they always can use a hand at just tying knots. The fellowship, like the fabric used, brings everything together. The Quilting Ministry is currently meeting Thursday mornings at 9:00 a.m.
SUNDAY SCHOOL - We have an adult Sunday School that provides Bible study for our members in a way that not only teaches, but offers a chance to participate and ask questions in a loving and enjoyable manner. We are not meeting at this time, but when we begin, we are sure you will find this time rewarding. There are no children or youth Sunday School classes at this time.
THRIFT SHOP - Our thrift shop is located next to our church. We have all kinds of items that our volunteers receive and look over to make sure they are in good shape to offer to our customers. You can't beat the prices. This ministry helps the church and also the community. Our volunteers not only have physical items available, but if you need prayer or some encouragement, you will also find those available. We are currently open 9:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
UNITED METHODIST YOUTH FELLOWSHIP - Here at First UMC, we understand that our youth are the future of the church. Our UMYF seeks to provide a fun and safe atmosphere that fosters spiritual and personal growth. No meetings at this time.
UNITED METHODIST WOMEN - Our UMW supports multiple ministry projects. The UMW meets at 10:00 a.m. every 2nd Wednesday of the month. At these meetings the different ministries are discussed and they discuss how God is working in their lives. One of their fund raising projects is their 5th Saturday community breakfast. At this time, they are not having the breakfast.
WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY - Our Women's Bible Study meets Mondays at 1:00 p.m. If you are looking for a Bible study and a time to meet with other women to discuss the Word of God, you are welcome to come and be with us.
