Organ tours

May 2, 2017

Kids from JAM, the Wednesday night music experience, got a tour of the organ March 22.  They got a close look at the keyboard, saw individual organ pipes up close, and visited the room that houses the pipes.

On April 2 the same tour was offered after church. Assistant organists Josh Peterson (right) and Parker Hinnenkamp (above) led the tours.





Empty Bowls filled with love

April 5, 2017

First UMC families and friends painted nine bowls on Sat, Mar 25 at Pottery Burn.  4 year olds through adults turned their visions into bowls of beauty with the intent of creating a world of love through the work of Second Harvest Food Bank.  Through this project, all realized that simple gifts given in love can make a lasting difference in the world.
