Note From The Pastor:

 I am in my 11th year as pastor of First United Methodist Church, and I am honored to be a part of this church family. Families come together to support one another in good times as well as in bad. Families laugh and cry together as seen in the many pictures associated with ministries and activities at First UMC. As you look at the directory, you will see families with one or more persons missing because that individual has already gone home to be with Jesus. Others are missing because they have moved from our community or family members are away at college or exploring other career opportunities. Even though their pictures are not before us, these people are still in our hearts. Families always remember those persons who have touched their lives in some significant way. We give thanks for all the members of our family, wherever they are, and we pray God's blessing upon them. You many also see pictures of people you do not know very well. I hope that you will make a personal effort to get to know each one in our church family. Together we will grow as a family and serve God through the ministry of First United Methodist Church.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Gary A. Marzolf
