2019 Year in Review 


2019 was a great year in the life and ministry of First United Methodist.   


Here are a few of the amazing things that happened in 2019.


Started our new Children's Ministry "The 605" on Wednesday nights.  We are reaching over 40 elementary-aged students each week.  

Continued growth in Youth Ministry


Introduced a new 2-day Vacation Bible school format 


In October we held our inaugural "Trunk or Treat" event



We  added the new beautifully lit flame on the front of our building 

We continued to see growth in membership

 Upgraded our sound system to bring a top-quality sound to our worship services 

Introduced Vanco Online Giving which  Gives our congregation the opportunity to give with cards, online and with mobile devices 

Online Giving

We created this  new, user-friendly website 

We provided Hot Lunches for school-age children during the summer and on Christmas and Easter breaks. 

We worked with a Strategic planning consultant and formed focus groups  in January and reviewed and identified what the church’s plan is for the future 

Created a Scholarship opportunity to assist seminary students in their theological education.

We started the process to upgrade all the  wireless internet, network infrastructure and electrical wiring in the church

We served alongside many great ministries such as Tree of Life, Servants Hearts Clinic, LaGoanve Alive, Habit for Humanity, Pathways Shelter and many more.  

As we look back on this year, we have so much to be grateful for...and we look forward to welcoming all God has in store for us as a church in 2020. Wishing you a #HappyNewYear with the hope of many blessings in the year to come!

Have a Blessed New Year!
