There are many opportunities to volunteer at FUMC Austin and get integrated into the community. Enjoying fellowship with other parents as we nurture our beautiful children is one of life’s greatest blessings.
We begin teaching our children acolyte responsibilities when they are in second grade. Our acolyte coordinator can prepare your child to serve during Sunday worship.
Children from Kinder – 5th grade are welcome to participate in choir. They meet weekly on Sunday mornings from 9:00 – 9:45 a.m. They perform in worship and for special events, as well as an annual musical performed in the spring.
One long-running tradition is the 4th and 5th graders’ assembly and sale of “Manna Bags,” intended to be given to those less fortunate than we are – they contain a day’s worth of nutrition as well as fresh socks and a note from a child.
FUMC Kids volunteers are integral to our church families and instrumental in nurturing our children in Christian love. Many ongoing volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year. If time is what you have, we can find a role for you. If working with supplies is a better fit for you, we always have a need.
