We Need You…
…to make our new church directory complete.
Plans are being finalized on the Church Directory. Many of you were unable to have your picture taken for the directory so we are offering you another opportunity to do so.
On Sundays, January 15, 22 & 29, there will be an area set up in the Narthex to have your picture taken from 10:00-11:00 and 12:00 to 12:15. These pictures will be used solely for the directory and not for your purchase.
You will be able to access the directory on line or for a fee one will be printed in the office for you. The cost will be determined by how many pages will need to be printed. The electronic version will be updated as members are added but the printed copy will be printed only one time.
Honoring soon-to-be parents Alex and Emma Williams

First Methodist School Wishes You a Happy New Year!
We are happy to be back in the swing of things at school! Because of our small class sizes and teacher aides, our teachers are able to work in small groups and one-on-one with our students to ensure that we provide the best possible learning experience.
We have a few spots available (2 year old, 4 year old, & Kinder classes) for the 2016-2017 school year. If you know a family with young children, please tell them about our school so they can learn and grow with us!
