Small Group Meetings with Rev. Maureen Baker

Meet Reverend Maureen

Rev. Maureen is so excited to get to know her new congregation!  She has asked if it would be possible to schedule a number of small group meetings in homes or at church in order to get to know us, listen to our hopes and dreams, anxieties and fears as together, we transition into her new ministry.  There are sign-up sheets in the multi-purpose room for those wishing to attend a group meeting.  We hope everyone will take this opportunity to get acquainted with our new Pastor.

If you are able to host one of these small, informal coffee and dessert meetings, please sign up on the calendar in the multi-purpose room or contact Wendy in the office.  Please indicate the location (church or home), the time, and number of people you can accommodate.

blessings in a box

Please Donate Necessities

blessings in a box

Our congregation is beginning a new community outreach mission project, year-round, for people in need called “Blessings in a Box”.  This will be a wooden box made by our youth during their summer mission week, placed on a post outside our church building.  The goal is to make life a little easier for folks who are lacking some basic necessities.   Examples  include: (travel or trial size) toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, band aids and hand sanitizer.  There will be a complete list of items in the mission collection area of the church ( between the buildings).  There will also be a collection basket.

We will begin our collection now hoping to have a significant supply to stock the box when it is completed in June.  Missions thanks you in advance for your support in helping those who will benefit from this project.

New Member Coffee Sunday May 21

First United Methodist

New Member Information!

We are so blessed to have guests visiting with us each week. I want to invite you to join me for Coffee with the Pastor. We will gather on Sunday, May 21, at 11:30 am in the conference room. We’d love to be your church family!  Coffee with the Pastor is designed to help you discover the values and beliefs of this church and the United Methodist denomination in a casual setting.  We will share drinks and a light meal together, learn more about the church, and one another.  I believe in this church and its ministry. When we find the right church family and make a commitment, we grow in our closeness to God, we learn to love our neighbor, and to walk as a child of God. I pray that you find that place of connection that will draw you closer to God.

If you have questions, concerns, or plan to attend, please give me a call, text, or email, 586.515.0013 or Child care will be available if that would be helpful for your family, just let me know.
