Risk Taking mission means we are opening ourselves to all the changes that take place within us when we seek to serve others. It means we recognize that in God’s eyes, we need as much changing as the people we are serving. First United Methodist Church has many ways to be involved in missions in Phoenix and beyond and always welcomes new ideas. Please call our office at (602) 263-5013 or email us to find out how you can become involved.
