Serve

Bandera UMC's Mission:

To Share the Good News and Make Disciples

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."

                                                                                                                                                                    – Matthew 28:18-20


Jesus' call to the disciples in Matthew is the same call He gives to the church today. And it is this mission that drives our church—to share the Gospel and make disciples. Drawing on the words and deeds of Jesus as our example, we want to love, serve, and lead the people of our community as we point them toward relationship with the God who wants to love, serve, and lead them for eternity.


Our church deeply desires to put our faith into action by meeting the needs of the people in our community and around the world. In addition to telling people about the life-changing love of Jesus, we want to show them by the ways we serve. Our faith inspires our work and lays the foundations for new relationships, life-changing conversations, and ultimately, salvation in Christ.


There are so many ways to serve locally through Bandera UMC, as well as getting involved in global efforts to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We want to empower you to do the work God has called you to. Get involved today!

Generosity

Donating your time is not the only way to serve at Bandera UMC. There are recurring costs to operating and staffing our ministry, as well as helping us do work throughout our community and the world. We believe that God calls us to give, and to give generously. We give you a chance to worship in this way by following this link.

Discipleship

As Jesus left this world, his parting words to his disciples were: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." We challenge you to be willing to serve and make disciples with us.

Thinking Globaly

Our desire is that all people will come into a life-saving relationship with Jesus Christ.  Therefore, we support various missionaries and organizations that seek to meet both the spiritual and physical needs of people throughout our world.


We also want to encourage people to serve different ways throughout our world. If you are interested in serving or finding out more, please connect with us.
