"Undie Sunday": April 6. We continue to be extremely low on, and in some cases completely out of, new men's and women's underwear in the Clothes Closet. This includes white cotton briefs, socks, t-shirts and women's sports bras in all sizes. To help meet the need, we are designating the first Sunday of each month as "Undie Sunday," to help you remember to bring in a few new pair of underwear, socks, etc. for the clothes closet (of course you may bring in your donations ANY Sunday). If you are able to help, we will be collecting these items in a bin in the chapel on Sundays, or you may leave them in the church office. Thanks for pitching in!
Lenten Dinner and Ash Wednesday Service: Wednesday, March 5, at 6:00 pm at First United Methodist Church. We will have dinner at 6:00 pm followed by an Ash Wednesday worship service with combined choirs at 7:00 pm. Cost for dinner is $7 for adults and $4 for children.
Remember Your Pledges and Offerings! Our busy schedules sometimes keep us from being in worship every Sunday, but the work (and expenses!) of the church continue throughout the year. Please remember to keep your pledges and offerings current
