COFFEE WITH THE PASTOR: Are you considering joining First Church? Then your first step is to come join our Coffee with the Pastor Sunday, September 3rd at 2PM in the Sanctuary Lobby. Learn more about the church and get to know our staff and expectations. Pastor Tom will share about the history of First Church and beliefs of the United Methodist Church. There will be an opportunity to join the following Sunday during either of our services. Childcare provided.

SHOP WITH SCRIP:  Did you know that First Church offers a great program that helps make the church ministry money?  You can purchase a gift card from Michelle Nelson for a ton of local places that you frequent for the face value, but the church receives a percentage back from the company.  You can’t beat that.  See Michelle today.

MIRACLE WHIP REMINDER: Thank you for all those who give to the Miracle Whip Campaign to make the KidMin Building, StuMin Building, and the Sanctuary modern and appealing to all.  Please remember that this is always above and beyond your regular giving and not a replacement of your regular tithes and offerings.
