Events & Volunteer Opportunities
Great Day of Service!. Please save the date for Tucker First UMC's First Annual Great Day of Service! On Saturday, September 30 from 8 am - 3 pm, individuals and families will gather in teams to go forth and serve in our community!
Projects, representing a wide range of needs, will be pre-selected prior, to the Great Day of Service. There will be something that YOU can do no matter your age. Families may serve together or choose different projects depending upon their interests. Childcare will be available for the youngest ones, but they too will have a fun project to complete. Imagine the impact for Christ we can accomplish if we all work together!

Help the UMW Assemble Pillows for Breast Cancer Patients. Help the community and have fun doing it. The United Methodist Women invites you to join us in assembling breast cancer pillows on Sunday, August 13 in Jenkins Hall at 2 pm. There is no sewing required. If you can tie a knot, you can help! If you can't tie a knot, you can still help with the pillow stuffing. The pillows are given to breast cancer patients after surgery to provide comfort and remind them that they are loved. Invite a neighbor and come join us for this afternoon of fun and fellowship with a purpose.
