As we devote ourselves to the ministry and mission of the Church, not only do we invest in the lives of others, but we also find our place and discover our purpose within the body of Christ.

The goal of the GO Team is to make the vision of EVERY MEMBER ON MISSION a reality.

We believe Huntsville First’s response to God’s call for us to be on mission will be determined by our entire congregation’s generosity to the Faith Promise missions budget and willingness to answer God’s call and to get involved personally in service to others.

For more information about our partnerships or to get involved in missions, please contact
Rev. Byron Vance (byron@HuntsvilleFirst.org) or Margo Alford (missions@HuntsvilleFirst.org).

In Order: JoJo Campbell, Marnie Woeber, Margo Alford

Supporting Missions at First

Faith Promise Giving

We participate in United Methodist missions worldwide through our connectional giving (10% of our offerings) and locally through Faith Promise Giving. GO Missions are funded through Faith Promise Giving. Faith Promise is a major means by which Huntsville First UMC is able to impact not only our community, but the world with the transformative love of Jesus Christ. Faith Promise pledge cards will be available on January 28 and February 4. This piece of our stewardship response to God funds Go Missions through the year.

How Can You Participate?
  • Pray for God’s guidance in deciding how much to promise for this year.
  • Fill out a Faith Promise commitment card and put it in the offering plate or send it to the Church office.
  • Make Faith Promise part of your generous response to God with weekly, monthly, quarterly or one annual payments (be sure to designate “Faith Promise” on your giving).

Faith Promise Pledge

When you pledge to give an amount over the coming year, it allows us to budget and allocate responsibly and have the greatest impact with our partners domestic and abroad.
