Once a year United Methodists come together to support the work of missionaries and Advance projects on UMC #GivingTuesday. Last year, more than 770 Advance missionaries and projects received 8,757 gifts through The Advance, the denomination’s designated giving channel.
Together, we can extend a helping hand to those in crisis so they can overcome formidable obstacles.
First UMC is hosting Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University” class beginning January 12, 2016.
