Over the summer you might have taken a road trip or two and along the way you had to make a detour. Maybe it was because of road construction, a canceled flight or you didn’t want to get stuck in traffic. 

At the beginning of 2020, many of us had plans laid out for the year, but COVID-19 had many of us taking a detour. 

Throughout the Bible we learn that our faith ancestors very often had a particular

idea, a plan, or a purpose. However, God still asked them to change directions.

Each Sunday we will focus on those stories and how God can be a comfort to us in this strange era of detours we are now living.

  • Kid's Own Worship

    Preschool in room C3, K-2nd Grad in room C10

    When children worship God, amazing things happen! At 1st UMC children are an important part of the church family and are welcome in EVERY worship service. For those who choose, we offer a worship service just for children 3-years-old through 2nd grade.  

    Kid's Own Worship is offered during during both 10:30 a.m. worship services (except on Communion Sundays which are generally the first Sunday of each month.) At approximately 10:45 the children are given the opportunity to go with adult leaders to the children's hall where they participate in worship time specifically tailored to their age.  

    During this time, the children are engaged in learning with drama, crafts, music and games. They might even enjoy the talents of different church members and other children as well as take time to learn about the many traditions in the church.
