Wednesday Night Activities

Check out what we have going on at our church on Wednesdays!

About Wednesday suppers here and FIRST TALK On Wednesdays in the Fall (beginning September 11th), join us for supper in the Fellowship Hall! During dinner we will have First Talk, where we have a speaker come and share for 10-15 minutes about what God is doing in their life. It is always a treat to be present for this. Dinner is $6/person or $20/family of 4 or more. Afterwards, we are offering four different Bible Studies for anyone wishing to join. Childcare is provided as well! See the cards below for dinner reservations and the calendar to see what is on the menu for each Wednesday. We hope to see you at dinner!

First Friends

First Friends is our weekly after school program for Elementary children!

Wednesday programming provides a midweek opportunity for children and volunteers to come together for fellowship, fun, and Bible teaching. Children are picked up from school by volunteers and brought to First UMC where they are provided time to work on homework, enjoy a snack, and activities related to the Bible lesson. Following First Friends, a family night supper is provided for a minimal charge. Families are encouraged to stay for further fellowship.

*Every person who works with children at First UMC has had a background check (Safe Sanctuary compliant) and has a deep desire to share God’s love with children.
