Spiritual Strategic Journey: Vision and Growth for 2015

Decatur First UMC is moving forward on a "Spiritual Strategic Journey" with church coach George Bullard. This "SSJ" is a process through which we have the opportunity to listen and focus on where God is calling us as a church. To make sure we make the most of this opportunity to hear God's voice and start visioning the future of our congregation, we want everyone to be involved! Be on the lookout for more information about how you can be a part of this. We hope you share our excitement and anticipation as we begin this journey together.

Chase away winter chills!
Unity Class to host Annual Chili Round Up on January 25

Playoffs, temperatures in the teens and short days mean wintertime is upon us. It also means it is time for some hot, tasty chili that comes with our Annual Chili Round Up. Hosted by our Unity Sunday School Class, the luncheon will be on Sunday, January 25 immediately following the 11am services. Decatur's own Porch Bottom Boys will be picking bluegrass music while you eat. We will also have quart-sized Chili To Go ($10 for 32oz). Vegetarian and children's options too, plus homemade desserts for all! Proceeds benefit the Youth ASP Mission.
