An Uptown Church

Remember the great opportunities we have this weekend so as to live according to our mission at First UMC. This mission statement reminds us we are an Uptown Church, where all are welcome, all worship, and all serve - to the glory of God.

The opportunity to welcome is before us on Saturday. As the Martinsville Christmas parade makes its way down Main Street, we will welcome our neighbors by handing our hot chocolate. We are grateful to the hospitality ministries of First Church, who welcome any and all to share in this ministry beginning at 5pm Saturday.
