Faith in Action
Don't Go to Church — Be the Church which means we don't just pray for the people in need, but we assist them as we are able.Faith in Action is a program designed to act out our belief that we as a community are responsible for the welfare of our environment and the people within it. Our slogan is
At First United Methodist Church, we affirm that faith isn’t just a set of things we say we believe. Instead, faith is following, obeying, and imitating the one who saves us. We hang on to this idea, even though some churches have decided that faith is only about a list of beliefs and a happy feeling in worship.
Faith in Action is a great way to invite someone to come with you to church. What a great way for someone new to get to know some new friends, than to work together! And what better way to show off the character of church, than to see our faith in action! A lot of people will find it less intimidating to come and work than to come and worship. If they have skills, that’s great; if not, that’s great too.
The Fall 2015 Faith in Action weekend will be November 14-15
On Saturday, November 14th we'll meet at the church at 9 am to get to work on our annual community service weekend. Once again we have a long list of folks who signed up to have energy-saving plastic put on the windows in their homes. On Sunday, we'll head out again after worship. This is an exciting time for getting out and making new friends around the community. Please recruit your friends and families to come help.
