A Message From our Pastor  
In a worldIn a world torn apart by politics, economic disparity, and religious differences, it’s easy to forget about the bonds that connect us with each other. In such a needlessly divided landscape, we want you to know that we’re here and we want to “get connected” with you. . . . (read on)

  Ministry of Moms at First UMC

We will begin a tradition of lunch after the 9:45 and 11am services on the first and third Sunday of each month. This will be a time for fellowship and getting connected. The lunches will be prepared by various ministries in the church, and donations are accepted. This process will allow these ministries a time to explain their goals and ideas. Lunches will be on Sept. 7 & 21, Oct. 5 & 14, and Nov. 2 & 16. There will be no lunches in December due to the busy holiday season. If your ministry would like to "host a Sunday," please let Meghan Eddy know (email Meghan).
