Serving Opportunities

There are many ways that you can become involved here at Orange City UMC.  As church members and followers of Christ, God calls us to become more like him. We must therefore seek out different ways that God has gifted us and stirred passions within us. Through the church we do this by reaching out and serving people in our community.  What area (or areas!) of our church would you like to be a part of?
