Service Opportunities


BACK-PACK BUDDIES - volunteers pack backpacks weekly during the school year on Wednesdays for children in need at local FWISD schools.  On the 3rd Thursday of each month we meet at the Tarrant Area Food Bank and volunteer there to earn credit that will go toward food items for the backpacks.   This program has several stages of preparation, shopping, packing and delivery, so volunteers with many talents and abilities are welcomed.

VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES - various opportunities are available on a daily/weekly/monthly basis to meet the needs of the church, its members and the community. Opportunities include helping in the church office, working in the children's and youth ministries, participating in mission outreach and evangelism, ministering to our homebound, just to name a few.

ALTAR GUILD- consists of women of the church who care for the altar area and prepare it for worship services. This includes the placement of flowers each week and the changing of the paraments according to the church calendar, as well as decorating for Easter and Advent. Flowers from the altar are taken on Mondays to church members who are ill, homebound or those in bereavement. The Altar Guild meets bi-monthly on the 1st Thursday of even numbered months.

EASTSIDE MINISTRIES-church members are asked to bring items from a monthly list (such as food items, personal items) to help stock the pantries of Eastside Ministries. Eastside Ministries provides necessary goods and services to indigent residents of east Fort Worth. Members of the church can also volunteer to help with various on-site needs at Eastside Ministries.Handley UMC Workdays

CHURCH WORKDAYS-are held periodically and/or as needed, to keep the church and its grounds maintained and also to prepare for special events. Many of the workdays are coordinated by the United Methodist Men.
