Poinsettias are for sale!

We are getting Poinsettias! They are ten dollars each, you can honor or remember a special person, a loss, etc. They are really beautiful! The cut-off date for the sale is Monday, November 20th. Please make checks payable to First United Methodist Church. Mark them "for Poinsettias".

In terms of our planning, some of our events will be “member-guest”.  These events are designed to connect members of our church with people who are not church members.  Therefore, in order to participate, you must bring a friend with you (a non FUMC member).  Events where this does not apply will be designated as “Open”.

Chancel Choir Rehearsals

Chancel Choir rehearsals have resumed on Wednesday, September 6th, from 6:30 -7:30 p.m. Rehearsals are held in the choir room, located in the basement under the sanctuary.  If you would like to join the choir, please contact Melody Harmon at (540) 974-9753 (cell) or (540) 667-3514 (home).  The only prerequisite is your desire to ‘make a joyful noise to the Lord’! Private instruction is also available.      

Gardening Group

Anyone with gardening interest wanting to participate in a group that is exploring having a community garden for our church, please  contact Stacey Stickley, 540-974-1299 or We hope to brain storm and plan throughout the fall for a spring time garden!
