Live and Share God's Love


Here at First United Methodist Church, a person has all sorts of ways to serve – inside the building and in the wider communities, with indoor quiet work, with tasks that involve sweat equity. There are ways for each person to contribute to building God’s realm on earth. Below are just a few of the ways.

A Chance to Support Claire thru Helping at St. Jude’s

Many of you know that Claire Hornby is at St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis, for treatment for Nerd - the cancerous growth in her brain. Kurt and Kirsten are with her as are other members of the family, off and on.

Naturally, we pray for all of them. Naturally, we want to do more. Some of you have donated toward the costs the family has and will continue to incur.

Lin Strong has supplied us with another possibility! Tri Delta Place, a place they stayed while at St. Jude’s has a Wish List! In each Messenger, we’ll share part of that list.

Arts & Crafts Supplies

 Canvases and Foam boards (any size)
 Pre-packaged craft kits
 Acrylic paints
 Paint brushes (wide, wood handle)
 Coloring books & crayons
 Glue sticks and liquid glue
 Pom-poms and Art feathers
 Fabric glue & pens
 Craft sticks
 Self-adhesive googly eyes

Also, if you’d like to send letters or cards to Claire while she at St. Jude’s, you can mail them to:

Ronald McDonald House
Hornby Family
Room #44
535 Alabama Ave.
Memphis TN 38105

Sermon Manuscripts

Did you know that paper copies are available of each Sunday’s sermons from that day through the following Wednesday on the table in the parlor. This can be a helpful tool for those with hearing challenges as well as for those you know who cannot make it to church but do not have access to the sermons online.
(Sunday’s sermons are posted on the church website, usually the following Monday.)

A Note from Pastor Jayneann


It seems to me that as faithful people, as Christians,  as church people, we should all be on  the prayer chain. We should all pray for  the needs that arise in and through our church.  So, as your spiritual leaders, I’ve made an executive decision.  Beginning July 1st, all persons who are a part of the  church and have email may receive emails (no more  than weekly) about prayer needs. If you would like to be excluded

(if, for instance, you feel you cannot be counted on to maintain confidentiality), please email me. No questions asked.


Display Cases

Would you like to display something in the case outside the office? We would love to see it!
Artwork; Collections; Antiques; Photos; anything you’d like to share.
Please contact the church at 715-842-2201 or Mike Zahn (715-302-5164) to make arrangements.

…the Human One didn’t come to be served but rather to serve and to give his life to liberate many people.

 Mark 10:45

Sani-Panti Update

In early April, Rachel Bergman shipped 318 pads to the distribution center. At our first sewing bee in January, UMW members cut and sewed 48 pads. In April 90 pads were completed. Thanks to all who donated funds, materials, and time to this mission project.
