First Methodist Church is committed to excellence not only in the church family but also in the community. It is our responsibility to provide leadership and give back to the community as much as we possibly can. In recent years, FUMCOW has participated in or led many successful events from a Back to School Back Pack Rally, Vacation Bible School, 3K, 5K to Raise money for Mission to Belize, Missions to Russia, and Homeless shelter.  We are excited to list the following events FUMCOW will be participating in over the upcoming DAYS and MONTHS of 2017.
