Happy Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a time where we reflect on what we have to be grateful for. We are reminded that we need to recognize the blessings in our lives each and every day to cultivate a true heart of thanksgiving.The staff at First United Methodist Church would like to wish you a very

Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.  

1 Thess. 5:16-18 says "Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Give thanks no matter what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus."

Dates to Remember!

November 26-27 - Thanksgiving Break  Building Closed


O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie.
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep

the silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting light.

of all the years are

met in thee tonight.

Each Advent season we hear the prophets proclaim words of hope in the midst of our troubled world. We sing Christmas carols that give voice and melody to our human fears and hopes. We marvel at the beautiful light that came into a dark world to bind together the hopes and fears of all the years, and we long for Christ's light to shine in our world today. What does it mean for us to be a people who live by hope and not fear?

Join us in worship for the season of Advent, beginning this Sunday, November 29.
