  • Name with a Face

    Various Dates and Times in August

    Wesley Hall (upper level)

    1st UMC is a big church and with four worship services each week, it can be difficult to get to know everyone.  Starting on August 12th, we're giving you a few opportunities to get to know your neighbors by putting a name with a face.  


    This will be a fun, relaxed time together where we can all get to know one another.  


    We hope you'll come to one (or more) of these special events:  

    Sunday, August 12th at 5:00 pm

    Wednesday, August 15th at 4:30 pm

    Saturday, August 18th at 10:00 am

    Sunday, August 19th at 7:00 pm

  • Go.Do.  Collection for Flood Buckets

    Sunday, August 19th and Sunday, August 26th

    During the month of August, we're asking for you help collecting items for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Flood Buckets.   Just bring in one (or all) of the items below.  The Outreach Team will shop for the rest of the items and the buckets will be packed in September. 

    One 32 to 64 oz. bottle of liquid laundry detergent

    One 16 to 34 oz. bottle of dish soap

  • J.O.Y. Fellowship Lunch

    Wednesday, August 29th

    Noon in Asbury Hall (lower level)

    Ann Van Curen, an RN with Blount Memorial Hospice is our J.O.Y. Fellowship speaker in August.  During the program, Anne will discuss the myths which often surround Hospice Care and provide you with a greater understanding of how the Hospice team serves the community as well as how you can be a part of it.  

    Lunch is $5.    Click here to sign up. 

  • All Church Tailgate

    Sunday, September 2nd

    Fall is just around the corner and along with it comes tailgating season.  Coming up on the morning before Labor Day we're taking the fun out into the parking lot with our 2nd ever All-Church Tailgate. 

    The fun begins at 9:00 am in the church parking lot.  Just look for the big tent that will be set up for worship.  Bring your favorite breakfast foods or set up a grill and serve up smoked sausage or country ham steaks.  It's all up to you.

    There will only be one worship service that day at 10:30 am.  We'll be kicking off our month long focus to Go.Do. and local recording artist Robinella will lead everyone in song. 

    It's gonna be a blast, so be sure and bring a friend (or two!)
