Dear Friends,

What a wonderful weekend here at First United Methodist Church! Our gym was full of people and treasures to sell! While I don’t have a final count of how much was raised, I can tell by the smiles of the money counters that it was a huge success! Thanks to all the volunteers who put in MANY hours to pull it all off. You have earned a much deserved break! Thanks to everyone who donated your stuff for this worthy cause!

Sunday morning worship was also wonderful as we celebrated our Mothers, and welcomed a new child into the faith through the waters of baptism. Eliza Kate Van Etten, daughter of Austin and Jessie Van Etten, was presented this Sunday. I love celebrating the gift of new life! Thanks be to God!

This coming Sunday, I hope you join us for our Baccalaureate service celebrating our graduating seniors. Please note, we will have one combined service at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Adult Sunday school classes may choose to meet at 9:00 a.m., however the Kids Ministry and Youth Ministry will resume classes on May 22nd. Please do stop by the gym to see table displays celebrating the accomplishments of our graduates!

Grace and Peace,
