News From Pastor Alecia’s Study
Remember Who We Are
We begin our fall looking at the very personal letters from St. Paul to Timothy. There is a great of wisdom to be gleaned from the ancient text, which is relevant to our current situations. This series delves into the core of our mission here at First United Methodist Church. If you are able, take time to read through the letters before we start the series!
We were privileged to celebrate the sacrament of holy baptism twice this month. On August 23, Maeven Egly was baptized. Her parents are Jess and Jason. Maeven has two older siblings, Ronan and Mia. Pastor Josh baptized Drake Smith the following Sunday. His parents are Kevin and Sara. His older sister is Zoey.
If you did not receive an Expansion update in the brown envelope during the first week of September, please let the church office know. We want to make sure the congregation is informed in each step of the process.
