Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me
Christmas of 2022, frigid cold descended on our area without anywhere in our immediate vicinity for those without shelter to go. So, First UMC opened its doors to house a cold weather shelter. This shelter continues. When temperatures drop below 25 degrees, a good dinner, breakfast, and warm place to sleep will be available to all those in need. This endeavor takes a tremendous amount of volunteers and so if you would be willing to help in any capacity - please fill out the volunteer form below.
