Did you know that if you can’t make your preferred Sunday morning service, you can come Thursday Night for a brief but meaningful service and stay for a delicious dinner?
At First Church you can!
It's called Dinner Church and you are welcome to join us every week to connect with God through worship and with our community through food and conversation!
Stay tuned as more details will be coming out pretty regularly!
MX Dates: June 14-18th, 2023
What is MX? MX is an abbreviation of Mission Experience. It's a new way of saying 'Service Project' or 'Work Camp'; except for these differences:
- MX is intentionally as intergenerational as we can make the entire week-long experience be! It's not just a term we use to mean 'all ages'; it's a term we use in our vision! The church AND the family working in partnership to disciple their children. Discipleship happens in small age-appropriate groups; Discipleship also happens when two different generations sit next to each other and share EXPERIENCES!
- MX is about being open to all possibilities and saying confidently and enthusiastically, 'Yes. Lord!' to opportunities instead of listing reasons why something is too expensive; too difficult; too bizarre; too different.
- MX is about connecting FUMC with our neighbors, but also with each other!
- MX is about experiencing our vision of 'Connect Ignite Shine' to understand our vision.
Every member of FUMC is invited to join us this summer as we set out to experience whatever moments God has in store for us!
