Jesus Came For Giving
Merry Christmas! Tonight at 7pm we celebrate the greatest gift giver of all. Nope, not the guy with the big red suit... Someone who gave and continues to give even more! If you understand Christmas is about miracles and giving, this is a worship service you won't want to miss. We will have a traditional candlelight service and opportunities to serve. Come, welcome Christmas with us!

Pastoral Visits
We are blessed with two pastors who have been meeting anybody with questions about their faith and/or how to live into it. If you have been talking to somebody like this and feel like you need more help, you can offer them a visit from the pastors of First United Methodist Church of YC. After asking permission from this seeker, please write their name, address, contact phone number, and your name on one of the prayer cards and leave it in the offering plate, or prayer box next to the sound booth.
