This Sunday: Worship outside and online

October 25 and November 1 we will have in person worship in the sanctuary, with reservations by Wednesday October 21. We will follow protocols with face masks and safe distance seating with ushers directing arrivals and departures to prevent bottlenecks.


Make a reservation or learn more about how we make decisions here.

The flamingo flock is on the move!

If you have a heart for helping others...or just want to have a bit of fun send a flock of flamingos to a neighbors yard. 


The flocks will fly in October. NOW is a GREAT TIME to buy INSURANCE!

Sunday, October 25

Blessing of the Animals

We will gather at 4:30 pm, at the Summers Field dog park. Afterwards we'll gather at 5:30 for a picnic under the pavilion. Following our Covid protocols, everyone should bring their own picnic. Tables will be spread apart and the church will provide bottled water and canned soft drinks. This is open to the Community, please invite your neighbors and friends! 


(This event was originally scheduled for October 11 but was postponed because of rain.)

Dr. Catherine Meeks

Presentation available

As part of a community discussion series, Catherine Meeks joined us by Zoom. She graciously as allowed us to record the video, and you can watch this here.  She provides reflections and practical suggestions for how we can listen, think, and strive to do our best so that every person knows that we are all God's children.


We hope you will join us for a 5 week discussion of her book, Living into God's Dream: Dismantling Racism in America. The zoom discussion will be Monday evenings for 5 weeks at 7pm beginning October 12.  Please email Pastor Cyndi for a link.


The Barnesville library has six copies available, and First United Methodist has several for purchase at cost ($18). The kindle version is available online for $10.

We are here with you

Thank you for all of your efforts to be together in new ways, even though we may be apart. We are so grateful for every phone call checking in on another person, every Sunday School meeting by Zoom, and every person who shares their gifts, service and worship. 


We are more than a building. We are the body of Christ. 


Online worship

One of the ways to stay connected is to worship with others at 10 am on Sunday mornings at  YouTube. We rebroadcast at 11 on Facebook. Services are later posted here.


If you know someone who cannot worship online, please share that they can listen to the service. Call a few minutes before  10 am +1646-876-9923 and use the Meeting ID 417 726 8613#.
