Often we are told we don't get what we want because we haven't really figured out what we truly desire. In our spiritual life, we have the same problem. If we go through life without examining what we truly desire, we may never be aware that we are making decisions about our spiritual life that we have never considered or examined. This week, we will be looking at what we truly desire for the part of us that never dies!
Have you been inviting someone to church but have run out of ideas? While nothing can replace being together to worship, have them check out our Worship Services ONLINE!

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.
Scrip fundraising is a program that allows families to raise money for the Church by using gift cards, or scrip, to pay for everyday purchases the same way as cash. Available in the Narthex at the Scrip Table.
