Gather in the Parlor


Hosted by United Methodist Women of First UMC

Mitten Tree
The Mitten Tree is in the Parlor Again!

Once again, we are collecting new hats, gloves, scarves, and (of course) mittens to give to The Salvation Army this Christmas. Homemade and hand-knitted items are especially valuable.

If you have any such items to donate, bring them to the church by December 19th and hang them on the tree in the Parlor.

Chancel Choir

Chancel Choir

Do you like to sing? Then the Chancel Choir wants you! The choir leads in wor-ship on Sunday mornings in the 10:00am service, and we rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:15pm in the chapel. Soon we will begin working on our Lessons and Carols service which will be Sunday, December 17th at 10:00am. Come and sing with us!

Come Sing With Us!


Why Bother with Choirs?

Singing in Choir...

Provides a healthy creative and artistic balance to heavily data-based education.

Is therapeutic, giving singers the chance to momentarily put aside their other pressures and concerns.
Is an effective vehicle for developing faith using music and church history.
Develops poise under pressure.

Teaches the value of teamwork.

Develops young people’s sense of culture and sophistication by adding beauty and aesthetic depth to worship.

Teaches the value of careful preparation in reaching goals.

Teaches a sense of responsibility and setting priorities.

Provides the foundation for a lifetime enjoyment of music.

Gives members a sense of pride and self-worth by showing singers that their individual leadership, demeanor and discipline make a significant to the success of the group
