First United Methodist Church

A Vibrant Weekend Ahead

Our Vibrant Family Pillar is helping our church family embrace the theme that “We are precious in God’s sight.” Psalm 139:14 says “I praise you because I am awesomely and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Because God sees all of use as precious, we should rightfully see all of God’s creation as precious in our sight. God marvels at the wonder of His creation, as should we. As part of a vibrant family, we strive to see the grace and goodness of God in all persons. Hopefully by expressing to those in our ministries, the love of God through Jesus Christ, they will want to seek and know more about God’s love and amazing grace. Everything we do should reflect this truth!

Clinging to this truth, our church family has multiple opportunities this weekend to be that Vibrant Family! Whether you support our precious preschoolers at Trinity Christian Academy (TCA) or the Methodist School for Early Education (MSEE) activities or our precious Kenyan youth through Panua activities – we anticipate this weekend to be a vibrant one!
