Attention golfers!  1st UMC 9 hole golf league began on Thursday May 12 and will continue every Thursday evening through September 8.   The league is open to men and women of all ages and skill levels, members and friends of First Church.   We handicap your score so all players have equal opportunity to win weekly and for the season.  We will play at Picadome Golf Course on Harrodsburg Road.  First tee time is 5:18 pm.  Last tee time is 5:52.  You do not have to play every week to participate.   This is the third year for the league and a fun time is had by all.  To sign up or formore information contact Dulaney Wood at
Summer Dinners together
We are planning to have our Thursday evening dinners in the month of June beginning June 2 at 6:30pm. Meat and drinks will be provided. You are encouraged to bring a side dish to share. So get out your calendars and plan to join us the first 4 Thursdays in the month of June. Good food, good fellowship!
Common GoodHelp Serve
Common Good , which is a part of Embrace, has asked us to help with the Thursday summer program meals.  This is a six week summer program and runs from June 6 to July 14.  Tom Eblen  is the point of contact and can help with most Thursdays but will be out June 9 and July 14.  Please check your calendars and see if those Thursdays are available.  If enough of us can help, it would be three sessions or less for each of us. The time frame will be from 11:30 to 1:30.
ALL of the students gather at 12:30 to eat lunch  together.  It’s our understanding we will be serving chicken breasts, mac and cheese, etc.

craft fair

Have you started your craft yet?
Do you want to get started? Some of the women from the Rachel Circle will be meeting on the 4th Wednesday of the month to work on crafts. Bring your own or just come to help, perhaps get some ideas.
November 6 has been set for our 2016 Fall Festival and Crafts Fair. The goal this year is to help fund appliances for our new kitchen!
You are invited to participate to help make this a success.
In case you missed the announcement this past Sunday:
We are happy to share that Bishop Lindsay Davis will reappoint all First UMC pastors (Dr. Mike Powers, Rev. Todd Nelson, Teddy Ray, Chad Foster, Rev. Linda Logston). Dr. Powers and Rev. Nelson will serve as co-Sr. pastors. The Bishop will also appoint Rev. Jim Nichols as the new Associate Pastor to First United Methodist Church serving at the Andover campus effective June 26. Look for more details on this appointment in the upcoming Celebrations publication. Please hold the Nichols family in your prayers as they become a part of our First Church family and ministry team.
