We are a growing church, growing family, moving forward. Our story began in December 1869 as the church first church organized in Butler County. In the first sixty years of our church’s existence, we worshiped in seven different locations and built three brand new buildings. Today, we have the opportunity to build on the legacy of generosity and sacrifice of those who have come before us.
We invite you to join us for worship from April 24 to May 22 as we consider the ways that our gratitude, prayer, ministry, generosity and sacrifice make it possible for First United Methodist Church to continue to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ for generations to come.
- April 24 – Grounded in Gratitude
- May 1 – The Impact of Ministry
- May 8 – Revealed in Prayer
- May 15 – Lived in Faith
- May 22 – Sacrificial Giving
