Fellowship Hour

Please consider signing up for Fellowship Hour.  In can either be for between services and/or after 10 a.m. Worship Service!  Starting in March, Birthday Fellowship will be between services and again following the 10 a.m. Worship Service.  Please join us in celebrating each other’s birthdays each month.  This birthday celebration will happen on the First Sunday of each month, but there are other Sundays available for you to host a fellowship hour.  This is a good opportunity to enjoy fellowship time after service.

 

 Volunteer Needs

Liturgists                                                                             

We welcome the fresh perspective and variety each reader brings to the pulpit on Sunday mornings.  Of course, we always appreciate the contributions of those who sign up regularly, looking forward to their continued participation.  So, as we embark on the journey, let’s share the joy of sharing His word with one another. There are still spots available.   Sign-up sheets for 8:30 or 10:00 service (your preference) are available in the Welcome Center. Thank you for your support.

 

Volunteers

First United Methodist Church values & appreciates its volunteers!  The church would not function without the generous donations of time, talent & dedication from its volunteers. 

There are several positions open for 2020 volunteers. When becoming church members we agree to support our church with our time and talents. The more people who volunteer for church positions the easier the work load is. Please speak with Pastor Jeff Hunt or Karen Lindsay if you are interested in serving on a committee or for one for one of the events and/or needs described above.
