Invite Committee

Invite, as the name suggests, is the hospitality arm of our church’s ministries.  We see our task as being intentional and creative in reaching out to our church members and to newcomers to our church community. We try to provide a warm welcome to members and guests who come to our church.  Through invitation, we seek to warmly embrace any guest who visits our church for worship, Sunday school, Wednesday night supper, or any other event.  Our goal is to be able to communicate, through hospitality, what Toccoa First is all about: a family atmosphere exists here, and our mission is that of making Christian disciples.

Invite Team Areas of Service:

  • Guest Visitation Team

  • Greeters

  • Communications

  • Recreation

Nurture Committee

These are the ministries that fall under Nurture's umbrella:

  • Wednesday Church Family Night meals, including meals delivered to the homebound​.

  • Coordination of monthly worship services held at the Wilkinson and Clary Centers​.

  • Congregational Care/Care Force – those who meet each Tuesday to offer need-based prayer and to update the Prayers Concerns bulletin. Regular visitation to nursing homes and the homebound are also a vital part of Care Force.​

  • Prayer Shawl Ministry – knitters and crocheters who meet weekly and create shawls, lap robes, scarves, throws, sweaters, baby blankets, caps, and many other items that are dedicated in prayer and given to those in need.​

  • New Members – personal notes are sent to each new church member​.

  • College Ministry - assistance for our college students.

Grow Committee

The United Methodist Church does not just care about social issues, but also for the state of the heart and the mind.  Through the many opportunities that we offer for Christian Education, children, youth and adults are invited to be transformed as they are inspired and challenged to know and experience God through Jesus Christ, claim and live God’s promises, and grown in their faith and in service to the world as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Serve Committee

We strive to provide opportunities for people to reach beyond the church boundary and out into the community. This is done in several ways:

  • The committee provides some funding to local charities such as food banks, shelters, health clinics, etc.​

  • A handy-man program provides minor house repair for those who cannot afford it. This program also builds handicap ramps in the community where they are needed.​

  • We support missionaries in Africa and Haiti.​

  • We support the local youth summer program called MERGE in cooperation with the North Georgia Baptist Association.

  • In the past, we have packed food for the Rise Against Hunger Program.​

  • The youth have packed flood buckets for disaster relief.​

  • United Methodist Women and Men report through this committee and provide support for many projects including stuffed toys for the hospital, food, clothing, and toys for holidays, bereavement meals, Boy Scouts, and Cub Scouts.

The Committee can use your help for projects when they occur. Make your willingness to work known to the chairpersons.
