Brown Bag Luncheon

The Brown Bag Luncheon is an informal gathering of folks who share lunch and conversation together. There is no particular agenda, just a change to enjoy one another's company. Our next luncheon will be held on Wednesday, July 17th at noon. Bring a lunch and we'll take care of the rest!

Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman - July.jpg

Book Club

The selection for the July book club is a young adult work of fiction entitled, "Seedfolks" by Paul Fleischman. This delightful, short novel tells the story of a young girl's attempt to reconnect with her father and the ways in which community is built as a vacant lot is turned into a neighborhood garden. A copy of this book is available in the church library. Free copies of the book are available at the church for our youth who would like to join the discussion. The book club will meet on Sunday, July 21st, at 6:00 pm in the church library.

Mission Guatemala 2025

First UMC will once again be taking a trip to work with our mission partners in Guatemala. Those who have participated can tell you that it is a well-organized, wonderful way to express your faith through serving others. The dates for the trip are June 7-15. We have reserved space for 20 participants. If you would like further information or would like to add your name to the participant list, please contact Rev. Boles.



Clothe-a-child is a longtime ministry of First UMC in cooperation with our friends at the Lincoln Central Neighborhood Foundation. We partner together to provide school clothes for children in need in our community. Lincoln-Central provides the names of those in need and First UMC raises the funds and takes them shopping. One of the areas of need is for interested shoppers. By shopping together, children can pick out items that they would both need and like. If you would be interested in participating in this important and meaningful ministry, please contact the church office.

Annual Summer Picnic and Auction

Save the date!

The church picnic will be held on Sunday, August 4th, at Donner Park. We will have an informal worship at church, featuring the Jazz Trio and then head to the park for a time of food and fellowship. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Food and drinks will be provided. In addition, as part of this year's picnic we will be auctioning items to raise funds for the upcoming mission trip to Guatemala. If you have items to donate, please let the church office know. In the past, some of the donations have included craft items, baskets of items, a dozen cookies each month, a plane ride, a homecooked meal for friends, etc. Let your creativity guide you and help us raise funds for this important mission trip.
