The First United Methodist Church, located at the corner of Church and Broadway Streets, will be serving a free chili lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23.  The lunch will consist of chili, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, dessert, tea, and coffee.  Everyone in the community is invited to attend.

The lunch is being provided as part of the church’s Acts of Kindness ministry. The United Methodist Church has been serving the community by sharing that they are a loving church with a desire to connect with people in a meaningful way.  Their Acts of Kindness ministries include a laundry ministry, serving a free breakfast the morning of Heritage Days, handing out candy and serving food during Halloween Trunk or Treat, providing children with Christmas gifts, preparing college care packages, assembling Festival of Sharing flood buckets and personal hygiene kits, hosting blood drives, making blankets, and providing food for the Hope Center.

The Methodist Church’s mission is to reach out, as a community of believers in Jesus Christ, to all persons, to nurture them as Christian disciples, and to enable them to share with the world God’s love and grace. The church welcomes everyone with open hearts, open minds, and open doors to their worship service each Sunday at 11 a.m.
