News & Events



Our “Loving Generously” five week sermon series begins October 19 and small groups will begin meeting during the week that follows.  Please see the display in the main lobby at church to sign up today for a small group!  You can choose an existing group, create a new group, or simply do the study on your own.  Once you sign up, you will receive a Participant’s Guide to use throughout this study.

You do not need to be a member of First Church, or any church, to participate.  Please contact Tina Eaton at adultministry@fumchurch.com or call 766-4611 if you have questions or would like to sign up.

To view a video “trailer” for this study go to http://www.reimaginegenerosity.com/choose-campaign/loving-generously/. Together lets work to break down the walls that separate us from people who may be different than us where we live, work and play.
