              God promised a king.

                   Christ came as a child.

              God pledged to bring justice.

                           Christ died on the cross.

            Yet, Christ is our king.

                        Justice comes through the grace of the cross.

            Come, let us worship the God of justice and righteousness.

- Meals for families and friends of 1st United Methodist Church Another Mission of the church is providing a meal or meals for persons or families that have recently come home from the hospital, have illness, tragedy or other misfortune in their lives. Jane Gilmore and Carol Becker are the resource persons to arrange for meals after they have been contacted by the Pastors, Parish Nurse or family member. We then contact the family and find out their needs and food preferences. Sometimes it is only 1 meal, sometimes meals for a longer period of time. However we do not overload the person with too much food, so usually a meal every other day is enough. When you sign up please let it be known if you will do the whole meal or you wish to partner with someone for the meal. We have had a list of interested individuals, but it needs updating with name, current phone number, and best time we can contact you. There will be a sign up sheet on the table in Wesley Hall. Thank you for being generous with your time and talent and helping our neighbors and friends. Jane & Carol.

- Having a New Baby? “Watching Your Baby Grow” is a great resource for parents who have just had a birth of a new baby or adoption of a child. This resource helps prepare you as your child grows to provide insight into the spiritual needs of your child. There are many changes in the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of a child from birth to five. You can keep track if the development and well baby check ups, as well as your thoughts and feelings toward parenting in the resource. It is often said “it takes a village to raise a child.”  Ask for help when needed.  Arrange for the parish nurse to visit you after the new baby to answer questions and learn about services in the community. To request a free copy of “Watching Your Baby Grow” contact parish nurse, Susan Thorson, R.N. at the church office at 665-2991.
