Live and Share God's Love

Opportunites

Here at First United Methodist Church, a person has all sorts of ways to serve – inside the building and in the wider communities, with indoor quiet work, with tasks that involve sweat equity. There are ways for each person to contribute to building God’s realm on earth. Below are just a few of the ways.
 

Our 9:03 Breakthrough Prayer

 
Do you believe in the power of prayer? Do you believe that can God works on us and through us even better when we are actively and regularly praying? We are a faith community who believe in the power of prayer. We believe that God is active in our lives and in the lives of First Church. And we want to be a part of that!

Are you praying Our Breakthrough Prayer - morning and night at 9:03 (or whenever works. I’m often in bed by 9 p.m.)? We began praying a new Breakthrough Prayer at the beginning of Lent. (but you can still pray an old one if you would like). We’ll keep praying this one at least through summer:
 
Break through, O God! Break through! Transform our hesitation and resistance into passion for your justice, compassion and generosity. We’re ready, listening and watching. What is your next thing? Empower us for the great good we haven’t yet imagined. Amen.
 
Additional prayer cards are available on the table in the Parlor.
 

Sermon Manuscripts

 
Did you know that paper copies are available of each Sunday’s sermons from that day through the following Wednesday on the table in the parlor. This can be a helpful tool for those with hearing challenges as well as for those you know who cannot make it to church but do not have access to the sermons online.
 
(Sunday’s sermons are posted on the church website, usually the following Monday.)
 

Pray our Breakthrough Prayer

…the Human One didn’t come to be served but rather to serve and to give his life to liberate many people.

Sunday Community Supper

 
The Sunday Community Supper is a ministry in which FUMC participates. Every Sunday night at First Presbyterian Church people gather for a free hot supper and fellowship from 4-5:10pm. Various organizations cook, host and serve the meal. Every month that has a 5th Sunday FUMC provides this meal about 4-5 times a year. The last one was on March 31st and the next one will be June 30th. Mark, Jen, and Pete Johnson serve as our church's coordinators for this meal. There is a great group of volunteers that work together to serve any where between 60-100 people. The guests are so appreciative of the meals and we all enjoy the fellowship with them. There is lots of laughter around the tables and in the kitchen. If you would like to join this ministry, please talk to Mark or Jen Johnson or call 715-470-2527. There are opportunities for everyone from baking a dessert, setting up, greeting, serving, washing dishes, clearing and wiping tables, or even entertaining or visiting while people eat. We would love for you to come and join the crew! Thank you!
