Weekly Update for March 8, 2018






Weekly Update

This Sunday: Make ’em Nervous

I’m a good person. But what difference does it make?

We’ve spent so much energy this Lent talking about how to be better people. Hopefully you’ve been working on yourself and finding it rewarding. But while being good is a reward in itself, sometimes it’s frustrating watching the world around us that… well… doesn’t always try so hard to be good.

This week we shift gears. We keep working on ourselves, of course, but this Sunday we’ll talk about what a Methodist (or any Christian) should be in the world. And, more importantly, why it matters. See you there!

Time Change: Spring Forward!

Don’t forget this is time change week… Set your clocks forward one hour before going to bed. You wouldn’t want to be late!

Easter Candy Collection

Easter will be here before we know it and it’s time to be thinking about First Church’s tradition of an Easter Egg Hunt after second service for the kids. In order to do this, we need your help! We will be collecting individually wrapped candy to be put into plastic eggs the whole month of March. You may bring your individually wrapped candy to the Narthex any Sunday during March. Thank you in advance for helping to carry on this tradition for the children!

Rummage Sale & Easter Boutique

The United Methodist Women will host a Rummage Sale & Easter Boutique on Saturday, March 17th from 8am to 1pm in Fellowship Hall.  You are welcome to bring items for the sale and place them in Fellowship Hall behind the room divider.  Please call the office to make arrangements to get your items into the church.  There will be rummage sale set-up days on Wednesday thru Friday, March 14-16 from 9am to 3pm.  If you are interested in helping, please feel free to come and do so!  If you have any questions, please contact Trudy Lingle.
