What will fall look like for our FUMCFW Youth Ministries? Every three weeks, we are planning some kind of in-person event which will be hosted outside, with social distancing and masks required. Join us on September 13 at 6:30 pm in the East Parking Lot for our Fall Kick-Off 2020 drive-in movie!
We have reinvented all of our normal wheels, so we wanted to make sure everyone feels caught up to speed on what to expect. We are committed to finding the best way we can to connect to your teenagers during this season, no matter how many different ideas we have to try!
Do you have a 6th grader in your life? Our beloved FUMCFW 6th grade Confirmation begins next month! Registration is now open. Sign up now to be a part of this unforgettable experience that will make them official members of the church and welcomes them into Youth Ministries, and all that lies beyond it!
Thanks to your generosity that supports First Church Ministries and in particular, FUMCFW Youth Ministries, I began my week shedding some tears. Not to worry though because they were tears of joy! Your gifts make this lifeline possible for our youth, some of whom will likely become our future First Church leaders!
Over these past 4 months, I have been unbelievably grateful for First Street Methodist Mission for a variety of selfish reasons. I wanted to offer this love letter to the ministry that has ministered to me in these past 4 months. So to Linda, Bernie, Kathryn, the volunteers, the board, and all of you have donated: thank you.

Life has changed drastically since March. I have been praying, talking on the phone with friends, and spending time with my family to help rationalize and understand what is going on. Trust in God and know that He is with you, even during what seems to be the darkest of times.
We’re not perfect, and we’re tired. But we’re not going to stop trying. We will keep showing up, for your teenagers and for your family. We’ll keep coming up with things for you to show up to. We’ll keep holding up the light of these promises – God is good, and here, and loves us, and it will be ok.
