Missions & Outreach

Missions & Outreach

Simply put, outreach is the heart of the church. It’s meeting the needs of our community and world while expressing God’s love in ways that build relationships and provide opportunities to share the word of God. Just as we have all received gifts and talents from God, we must use them to minister to others and to bring glory to God’s name (1 Peter 4:10). Our vision is to love God, love people, and make disciples. We’re doing this by getting outside the walls of our church and spreading the Gospel across the nations (Mark 16:15). 

Cumming First United Church Missions serve the world sharing God’s love. We are involved in mission work within the church, in Forsyth County, across the United States, and around the world.

Where would you like to get involved? What is your passion? What gifts do you bring that can add to what God is doing through CFUMC?

Our Local & Regional Partners

One of the greatest commands Jesus gave was to love your neighbor as yourself. A heart to serve comes from that Christ-like love for those around us. When you get connected to a local outreach opportunity, you get to use your God-given talents to change lives. We also look for opportunities to serve and bless our community in Cumming, Georgia.
