God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. -Ephesians 1:5, NLT
At First UMC, we strive to be a congregation for families and to be family for those in need of one. We understand families to be both blessings and sometimes challenges as we all sometimes struggle to be the best parents, children, sisters, brothers, granddaughters, grandsons, cousins, nieces, nephews we can be.
Some of our family events are simply lighthearted gatherings to spend time together, eat, laugh and enjoy each other's company. In today's world that's important enough. We also offer deeper events like financial freedom classes and small groups to help equip families for faithful living in an ever more challenging world.
