The Columns – January


The Epic of Eden
Join us beginning January 19th and 20th, 2016 for a 12-session study, THE EPIC OF EDEN, by Sandra Richter. This study shows us how Old Testament understanding leads to fresh depths of New Testament faith for everyday life in the real world. Old Testament can sometimes feel like a puzzle we’ve tried to put together but wind up putting back in the box because its too complicated. You will find this study to be a great adventure as we explore stories, characters and events (beginning with Eden!) and how they connect with the New Testament lives we live today. Call the church office or email to register!

Upcoming Events
UMW Fiesta! • Saturday, January 23 • 9:30AM • Storer Activity Center, First UMC
We welcome all women from FUMC, including all current UMW Circles, to come together to learn more about United Methodist Women and what they can accomplish if they work together.
UMW’s official purpose is to know God and experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative and supportive fellowship of women; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
Membership in this dedicated and far-reaching group is open to any woman with a desire to participate in the global mission of the church. We have fun because we believe in our goals and have faith we are supporting God’s mission in the world.
Consider this an open invitation! Hope to see you soon!
Sheila Berry, President
