Happenings at First United Methodist Church


  • This Week at a Glimpse - This Week at a Glimpse - April 22nd-29th


  • SATURDAY NIGHT ALIVE UPDATE
    The Saturday Night Alive service will be coming to an end on Saturday, May 5th. We have enjoyed over 12 years of worship and fellowship on Saturday evenings, but now it seems that new ministry should arise out of that evening service time. We are excited for the new opportunities God will present us. Please pray with the SNA regulars for a fresh vision for that time. If you can, join us at 5:00 p.m. on May 5th for a celebration of God’s grace and goodness.
