Jesus Is God With Us

The early church mothers and fathers had the great wisdom to set aside the four weeks leading up to Christmas as a time to prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ. The birth of Jesus was a historical event that took place in a particular time and place, and yet every Christmas has the potential for Jesus to be born anew, in our lives and in the world. Join us for worship at First UMC El Dorado from December 3…

Planting for the Harvest: Giving and the Christian Life

Jesus began one of his most famous parables, “A farmer went out to plant seeds…” He frequently used illustrations from the farm to teach his disciples about growing spiritually, the practices that help us live as disciples of Jesus Christ, and the struggles we face in experiencing the joy of the Christian life. Join First United Methodist Church this fall for Lessons from a Pumpkin Farm. We will study Jesus’ agricultural lessons and other biblical teachings regarding the spiritual life.…

Receive Forgiveness

Jesus was clear in his teaching: He offers us God’s forgiveness and instructs us to forgive one another. Why is this so hard? What is it that makes us so unforgiving of ourselves and of each other? The Easter season begins with our youth leading worship on April 3. Then, we will consider one of the greatest issues we confront as human beings. We’ll take an honest, realistic look at how to offer and receive forgiveness. April 3 – Youth…

The Wildernesses of Our Own Making

In the Bible, the wilderness was both a geographic place, barren and harsh, and a  metaphor for those times when life is difficult and filled with adversity. In our own lives, we’ll all have seasons when we walk through the wilderness – seasons of loss, opposition, abandonment or despair. In Messages from the Wilderness, we’ll study the lives of biblical characters who found themselves in the wilderness. From them we’ll learn the keys to surviving our own times in the wilderness. If…

The Power of the Holy Spirit

The great hymns of our faith share the truth of scripture. They remind us of God’s promises in times of trouble and relax our hearts when we are overcome with worry.

Join First United Methodist Church on Sunday from May 24 to June 15 for Then Sings My Soul, a worship series focused on the…
