Communities aren’t changed by programs, but by relationships. Our strategy for missions is to build and support relationships that inspire change. We do that by building relationships by volunteering with our local mission partners.
First Methodist is in partnership with Lakeland Elementary School. The church and school continue to work together to serve the students and staff of the school.
