This coming Sunday, December 14, First Church welcomes Dr. William John Newbrough to minister during both morning worship services. He is a world renowned pianist (click here for bio) who desires to share his gift of music and his witness wherever God leads. His bio is extensive and impressive, but even more impressive is that it is all to God’s glory. You won’t want to miss worshiping at FUMC next Sunday!!
