Imagine No Malaria
On Sunday, May 17, children and youth from the Sunday School participated in a basketball shoot-a-thon to raise awareness for Imagine No Malaria. INM is a global partnership spearheaded by the United Methodist Church to eradicate malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. As "networkers" and partners with the greater UMC, we used our basketball net at the parsonage to make a difference, and raised more than $375 through pledges per basket made. This was our April and May mission: Each month during the school year, we attempt to raise the consciousness of our children and youth through several local, national and/or global projects -- an opportunity to share God's love beyond the "Church on the Hill". Thank you for your support!
Dear Friends and Church family members,
On Saturday, May 9, the funeral service of Quinton Buehrens will be held at 11 a.m. in our Sanctuary. The death of a person so young is difficult for everyone, but especially for teens and classmates. Below is a link to a website titled "Grief Speaks: Death of a Teen Friend" that Pastor Jim has found helpful in this situation. We invite you to click the link below and let us know what you think:
Easter Baptism and Confirmation
Through the Sacrament of Baptism we are initiated into Christ's holy Church. We are incorporated into God's mighty acts of salvation and given new birth through water and the Spirit. All this is God's gift, offered to us without price.
Through confirmation, and through the reaffirmation of our faith, we renew the covenant declared at our baptism, acknowledge what God is doing for us, and affirm our commitment to Christ's holy Church.
Easter Sunday, First UMC had the privilege of welcoming Sam into our community of believers. Blessings, Sam!
