the importance of the act of service. Join other United Methodist families as they
serve Thanksgiving Dinner to those less fortunate. Meet at First UMC TODAY from 3-5

Well-Versed Kids—we are already on month four of our Well
-Versed Kids Program. We have several kids who have learned ALL of their
verses! It is important for our children to learn scripture so they can always
have God’s Word available to them. Please help them learn their verses!
As Thanksgiving draws nearer, we will be asking the kids to think of things they
are thankful for each week. We encourage you to do the same in your own home.
You can have your own “Thankful Tree” that can serve as a daily reminder of all of
the blessings that God has given your family.
