We serve because God blesses each person with certain gifts to use in serving others.  As a response to God, we use those gifts.

First United Methodist Church of Bedford is considered an Equipping Church

  • Pastors, staff, and leaders equip and organize the congregation for ministry
  • A person’s ministry role, spiritual gifts, talents, and life experiences are discerned through a process called Ministry Discovery



There are a variety of ways to use your gifts to serve:

  • Ministries of Hospitality at church
  • Additional Ministries that take place within the church
  • Ministries in the community and beyond
  • Ministry opportunities for individuals, teams and families.

Please contact Pastor Judi if you are interested in serving and would like to explore your gifts and possible ministry opportunities available at First United Methodist Church of Bedford.

Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.  Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.  This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.

-Ephesians 4:11-13
