Find your own unique way to serve others.

FPC Marietta offers many ways for youth and adults to get involved with our church community and the community at large. You don’t need experience to lend your time, just a can-do attitude and willingness to complete some training for certain opportunities. We encourage you to experiment with different ways to serve until you find a real passion you can embrace. And if you haven’t yet found that passion, don’t underestimate the power of prayer to guide you.

Our church family is also happy to guide you to opportunities that may be a good fit for your time and talents.
