ANNUAL YOUTH PANSY SALE
Beginning on Sunday, September 20, pansy orders will be taken in the Narthex through October 11. Pansies will arrive and be available for pick up on October 17.
This weekend was a busy one for our children. We had Parent’s Night Out on Friday, September 11. Twenty-two children came for the pizza and movie. Most of these children were from the community. On Sunday, September 13, we had 20 children for Alleluia Ringers and Singers, Cherub Choir and Kids4Christ. Most of these children were from our own congregation, but our children are doing a great job of inviting others to come with them.
So we want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who is supporting the Campus Revitalization. As we were leaving at 10:00 p.m. on Friday and as it was beginning to get dark on Sunday, the campus was well lit and we all felt very safe. Thanks again for all of your support of our children’s programs and for helping to keep us all safe.
On Sunday, September 13, Matthew Balderas and Liliana Martinez each received a Bible from the church. Third graders and those who are new to our church receive Bibles from the church.
UMCD is so great!
LOOKIN’ BACK IN 3D FROM THE BIG SLEEP AND TO THE GREAT AWAKENING
Join the New Horizon’s class for much fun, fellowship and refreshments on Sunday night, October 11 at 6:00 pm in the Chapel for a delightful evening with Dr. Paul Benson, Dr. Dan Hoke, and Keith Head.
Doc Way Back, Doc How’s That, and Doc So What will give a somewhat skewed version of church history to the delight of saints and sinners alike! Our old cranky codgers are Gospel preachin’, lay-teachin’, and catfish-lovin’ water-sprinkling’ and quartet singin’, and good old-time camp-meetin’ Methodists.
Great Food! Great Fellowship! Every 2ND & 4TH Saturday at 5 p.m. in Alexander Gym
All are welcome.

First Methodist School – First Chapel for 2015-2016
FMS students enjoyed their first chapel services last week! We were taught the story of Jesus’ trip to the temple with His parents by Linda Elms and Pastor Alex Williams. We are still enrolling for the 2015-2016 school year (ages 1-kindergarten)! Thank you for telling friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers about our school.
