2nd @ 1st
Small Group Hour
2nd @ 1st is the Small Group/Sunday School hour at First UMC. Our first hour on Sunday morning (whether you attended services at 8, 9, or 11am) is always dedicated to congregational worship. The second hour is a time to meet new people, deepen friendships, share life together intergenerationally, recognize how God is at work in our lives, facilitate fruitful conversation, challenge one another in practical ways, and pray together. This opportunity for discipleship takes place from 10-10:50am in various rooms throughout the church. See the descriptions below of the current groups that are meeting. Though it's preferred that you start with a group from its beginning, you can always jump in late if you're new to our church community (especially during the summer months). Beginning in September, all 2nd @ 1st groups will run for 6 weeks before beginning a new wave. If you have any questions, please contact Craig Fasnacht or Laura Gingrich .
Lower Overflow, Sanctuary Level: June 3rd- September 2nd
Nooma is a series of short films promoting spiritual reflections on individual life experiences. Each film is about 10 to 14 minutes of Christian teaching related to real-life. The short story covers a specific topic, usually by relating various experiences from a Christian perspective. Each film can be viewed and discussed independently, so this small group is a perfect one to stop in and join whenever you can!
