A Message For You!
We are a community of people seeking to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and in service to the community and the world. We hope you will visit us and experience the warmth and concern of First United Methodist's people...and catch the enthusiasm and excitement that comes from "Knowing Christ and Making Christ Known."

Are you seeking a family church? A place to explore your spirituality? A place to talk, share, and worship with people who will accept you for who you are? Come this Sunday.

Whether you are a regular attender or a visitor to our site, we hope the information you find here is helpful and uplifting. We have many ministry opportunities here at First Church and welcome you to become a part of them.

Stephen Ministry Commissioning Sunday: Next Sunday, May 3, we will have a "Stephen Ministry Commissioning Sunday," which means those who have completed training to become a Stephen Minister, will officially be a Stephen "Minister." We invite everyone to help carry on that biblical tradition by being a part of commissioning those who have responded to God's call to be part of our congregation's Stephen's Ministry.

Blessing Basket Needs: We are collecting "Canned Goods" and "Boxed Items" for our annual Blessing Baskets in November. If you would like to help, please pick up a few cans and boxed items and bring them to church with you and put them in the box in the Narthex, or you may drop them off at the church office during regular working hours. Please make sure the expiration dates are good until 2016. Thank you!

We are now meeting every Friday morning at 9:00 AM in the Church Conference room.
