Pastor Amy’s weekly sermons are published in this section of our First United Methodist Church website. Pastor Doug’s, David Finney’s, Jack Hott’s and Jennifer Fry’s sermons will also be included when they take over for Pastor Amy. Click on the date of the sermon you would like to study. It will appear in a Word file and you can read, copy and print it as you choose. When you are finished, simply close the Word file by clicking on the small x in the upper, right hand corner, then click on the x to close the “new page” tab at the top left of the page and you will be returned to the website.
