First UMC is collecting personal care items for men, women, and children in need.  If you have a little extra time on your hands, consider putting together some items that would be useful to someone who is un-homed.

We will be gathering the items listed below, so that we can distribute them at our Food Distribution (Third Tuesday of every month) or when is needed. A Plastic bin is located at the entrance of the Sanctuary (narthex) for collection.

With your help, we will continue to reflect God’s love in a very meaningful way!

Worship with First UMC Online 11 am every Sunday!

“The power of Prayer”

Prayer is a conversation with God (silent or speaking out loud) about anything at anytime and anywhere. You don’t need to use big or fancy words; just be honest and sincere.  Pray whenever you need to talk with God. Praise God; thank Him for what He has done; tell Him how you feel; ask God for what you need; confess what you’ve done wrong. “Don’t worry about anything, instead , pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”Philippians 4:6

Luke 3:7-14

John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”
