From serving as a greeter at the front doors of the church, to serving as a reading buddy with Waco ISD children, to spreading the word of Jesus in prisons, First Methodist Waco has hundreds of opportunities to serve the church, the Waco community, and the world. Let us help you find the perfect place to plug in and serve.


Greeters, worship assistants, communion servers, please contact Molly Simpson.
Reading buddies with Waco ISD, please contact Jon Thornsbury.
For all other volunteer possibilities, please contact Martha Palmer.

Meals on Wheels

For decades, First Methodist Waco has been a Meals on Wheels kitchen and distribution site for Waco. Our volunteers share more than a meal - prayers, encouragement, and Godly inspiration is shared at every visit! 

To volunteer in the Meals on Wheels outreach, please contact Cari Jones.

To help support First Waco's Meals on Wheels Ministry that feeds 45-50 homebound persons three times per week ($125/day), contact Sara Holmes at 254.772.5630 or by email.


Local Ministries Need Your Help!

Here is a current listing of the servant needs of several ministries in Waco. This is not an exhaustive list but only several that we are aware of at this time. There has been a significant decrease in the volunteer workforce due to the current crisis but also due to the majority of volunteers who come are from specific risk groups (seniors/older adults). If you DO NOT fall into a specific risk group and would like to serve please do so. If you have any questions please contact Pastor Jon Thornsbury.
