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!
Easter Egg Hunt 2015
In an egg-citing morning that took place at the Church on the Hill, our annual Easter egg hunt started things off at 9:45 a.m. Children decorated bags before searching for eggs on the Hill as we joined together to celebrate the Risen Lord!
Easter Egg Roll 2015
Our very first Easter egg roll was held March 28 at the Church on the Hill! Because of the weather, we were forced to move the event inside, but still had a wonderful time with our friends and neighbors.
This "sweet" note was left for our confirmation candidate on a Sunday morning.
Sam - It is such a "joy" to welcome you as a confirmand, ready to proclaim Jesus as your personal "life saver". The whole congregation has "mounds" and "mounds" of "reasons" to take pride in you, and we know that "now & later" you will be so happy to have decided to follow Him. "Whether" or not you travel to the "milky way" or anywhere else in His creation, you have the "smarties" to know that He is guiding your life. You are no "dum-dum". We are "extra" proud of you for standing strong in your faith in Him and joining this congregation as you profess your love for Jesus, for United Methodism, and our own First United Methodist Church. "Hugs" and "kisses".
