 Let all who would know the freedom of God’s grace come together!

Please pause for a moment to admire this beautiful project.

- Sunday School Class Rev. Ron will be leading a Sunday School Class starting Sept. 8th at 9:45am. Five Stones Conquering Your Giants. Sometimes, our greatest battles are not with the “giants’ - the external challenges which we all face. Instead, our greatest battles are often within ourselves. Learn how to increase the potential of your ministry, your business, and your life, using one of the most well-known and well-loved stories in history: David and Goliath. Like modern-day Davids, readers will be empowered to conquer challenges, in ministry and in life, with clear-eyed confidence and well-grounded hope.


- Women’s Bible Study Opportunities Women’s Bible Study that meets in the Upper Room during Sunday School, will be starting a new study on September 8th at 9:45am on Sunday's.  We will be studying "Here and Now...There and Then a Series on Revelation by Beth Moore.  In this 11 session study, Beth presents many points of view, allowing women to decide for themselves when the interpretation varies.  She teaches that God is as specific about what he does reveal as about what he does not reveal.  Please join us this fall!
 Women's Bible Study that meets in the Upper Room on Wednesday Nights will be starting a new study on Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30pm.  We will study "Jesus the One and Only" by Beth Moore.  Come along with Beth on a life-changing journey which will lead you through the hills of Galilee with the Teacher, across the lake with the Master, and, finally, on the road with the Savior -- His face set toward the cross.  Join us for this life changing study!


- Servant Hearts Clinic provides free medical care on a first come, first served basis to anyone in need.   All providers and staff are volunteers seeking to show the hearts of Jesus to those in need.  Currently the clinic is offered twice per month on Monday evenings from 5:30-8:00pm at the R Tec building at 1200 West 21st Street.  Jim and Shari Frerk and Jim and Marilyn Lofflin came to our church and spoke about the clinic and answered questions.  Volunteers needed to run an evening of the clinic include 2 medical providers, pastoral care, licensed mental health provider, nurses, social workers, non-medical volunteers to help with name tags, greet patients, register patients, and guide patients through the clinic process. Many of you from the congregation have stepped forward and expressed an interest in helping in some way.  Our hope is to have enough people that 1st United Methodist Church can staff a clinic once per month. We are currently looking at the 2nd Monday evening each month.  If this is a mission that you can help with, there is a sign up sheet in the office. An application needs to be completed.  You are not obligated to help every month.  There are so many opportunities to help with missions right here in our own community.  Please consider this one. If you have any questions, contact Syndee Droppers or Gena Brandt, Missions committee.
