RITUAL OF FRIENDSHIP (Please leave complete address)


Brothers and sisters, have you loved your neighbor? Have you stopped by the

road and bandaged the wounded, or have you passed by on the other side?

            The Lord is acquainted with all our ways!

Sisters and brothers, have you loved your God? Have you carried the afflicted

to a place of rest, or have you turned your back and hurried on?

            The Lord is acquainted with all our ways!

Come to God, that you might learn to show mercy. Come to God, that you

might receive mercy.

Let the Lord teach us how our hearts can love - with all their

soul and strength and mind!

*LITANY “Go and Do Likewise”

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all

- Ushers Needed One of the important ministries here at First UMC is the one performed by our ushers. The Worship Committee is recruiting people to help fill in some of the open spots on our usher schedule and to develop a list of substitutes to fill in when out permanent ushers are unavailable. Many of our current ushers have served faithfully for a number of years. With summer approaching and the service times changing for the summer we are in need of people to help out by filling in some of the open slots. This summer would be a great time for anyone thinking about stepping up and helping with this ministry to check it out. and see if this is a way you would be able Please prayerfully consider whether this would be a way for you to fulfill your membership covenant to “faithfully participate in the ministries of the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness”.  Please contact Craig Sherman, Worship Chair if you wish to help out with this ministry.  Email: or 665-7182.
