Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?"  Then I said, "Here am I, Send me.” - ISAIAH 6:8

Welcome to Argyle UMC Missions. Our vision is to connect hearts and share the love of Christ with those outside the church meeting physical, spiritual and emotional needs. Join us as we serve our community and the world one life at a time, sharing the love of Christ and making disciples. We have many wonderful opportunities to connect and serve in the Denton and Argyle communities, as well as mission trips. Will you answer the call of the Lord and say, “Send Me?”

May 20-21, 2017

Worship can take place in many forms, and serving others is one of the main examples of worship that Jesus taught us. Through WOW, our community is reminded that worship isn’t just attending church one day a week—it’s the act of serving others on a day-to-day basis; it’s the little things that accumulate into a lifestyle of worship. Argyle UMC is a church that strives to grow together as disciples, working with God, to transform the world one life at a time.

METHODIST CHILDREN'S HOME

Methodist Children’s Home is a non-profit child care ministry affiliated with the seven United Methodist Annual Conferences of Texas and  New Mexico. Founded in 1890, the Home serves more than 1,000 children daily through residential care, a Boys Ranch, foster care and a college program.

UMCOR

UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) is the humanitarian relief and development agency of the United Methodist Church. Compelled by Christ, UMCOR responds to natural or human made disasters—those interruptions of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on its own. UMCOR’s mission is to alleviate human suffering. We provide practical, proactive support to the most vulnerable survivors of chronic or temporary emergencies due to natural or civil causes. One of the ways UMCOR responds to the needs in our country and around the world is by supplying cleaning and health supply kits to areas hit by tornado, hurricane, flooding and earthquake. AUMC members contribute these supplies for shipment to UMCOR Sager Brown Supply Depot in Louisiana. The UMCOR Sager Brown Supply Depot in Louisiana offers volunteer opportunities for all ages to come to the center to assemble and pack the kits ready to ship to disaster areas around the world. Volunteers wishing to help in this way please contact Jane Kayler or call 940-262-0393 for more information.

Offering Counter

The Counting Team is a vital part of AUMC’s operation. Without the weekly offerings, there would be no Church. We meet in the office at 9:30 on Monday mornings or after the last service for Sunday counts. The count usually only takes 30-45 minutes.

Sanctuary Helpers

The church has a need for volunteers to refill the chair backs with Offering envelopes and Prayer Request cards and make sure there are working pens in place. This works best if two people work together. It only requires one Thursday morning or afternoon a week. This is a great way to be involved in the church and only takes a small commitment of your time. If you have any questions, please send an email to: volunteers@argyleumc.org.
