Ministry is what we're all about. Check out a sampling of the various service ministries we provide below... and start getting excited about how you're going to serve with us!
So that all families can worship, we provide nursery care for children 5 years of age and under during Sunday School and both worship services. For further inquiry, please give us a call at 309.342.3197 or send us an email!
In addition to our Youth Sunday School, junior high and high school students are invited to our Wednesday afternoon Youth Group at 6pm, as well as special outings and events on planned Sundays. To find ways to help, contact Travis Randolph.
Senior Adult Ministry
First United Methodist has an active Senior Adult Ministry. Members of the Caring Ministry regularly visit members of the church who are homebound or who live in nursing homes; church members regularly bring chapel services and Bible Study to nursing homes; and the Bus Ministry (see below) transports seniors to and from worship each Sunday morning. In addition, active seniors engage in plenty of outings and social events via the FIRSTS seniors group.
Need a ride? Give us a call at 309.342.3197 or send us an email if you need a ride to church on Sunday morning. We won't let a little thing like distance keep us apart!
