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.

Shop at

The Mission Store

Saturday, December 16th
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM  Before & After Church

A special kind of gift…
Your fair trade purchase will give hope to families around the world. Crafts available from 37 countries.

A note from Tom & Jayne Fox:

We need to inform you that this will be the last year that Jayne and I will be coordinating the Mission Store. We hope that one of you/churches will step forward to carry on the 28-year tradition. We would be available to help with transitioning along with donating the trailer and equipment.

Community Christmas Dinner

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

Justa Mitten Tree?

Well, yes and no. The new-forming UMW Justa Circle has taken on the Mitten Tree as their first project. But we
need more than mittens! In an effort to bring this seasonal favorite into better focus, an eye-catching Christmas tree setting is arranged near the sliding glass doors in the parlor. We connected with The Women’s Community and, in addition to their day-today needs/requests found on the website, the following “wish list” was provided:
  • Girls leggings and tights size 4-14
  • Really needed boys & girls underwear in all sizes
  • Boys undershirts size 4-14
  • Boys and girls socks small, medium, large
  • Hats, gloves and MITTENS!

Our Justa Circle invites you to pick up an item from the list above and join us in mission this December. Do not wrap your item. Place in any of the open topped decorated boxes near the tree. Delivery will be made the evening of December 16th.
