The annual Operation Christmas Child Shoe box Packing Party. The date was November 12, 2016.  over 300 Boxes were assembled

These boxes will go to share the joy of giving to give children in such places as refugee camps, hospitals, or orphanages, around the world the gift of hope, love, and the message of Jesus Christ.

A mission team from the Mexico First United Methodist Church traveled to Baltimore, Maryland for four days to work at Samaritan's Purse Processing Center at the end of November 2016.  The center processes and ships Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes around the world to children in need.  Pictured, from left to right, are:  Jenna Behling, Lori Behling, Alicia Weber, and Gary Weber.

Excerpt from Pastor Emily Huyge Dec 2016 Newsletter message

From Bedlam to Bethlehem

 God has a history of breaking into the lives of those who have lost track of Love. As the Advent season begins – as we start a new liturgical year and prepare to welcome Jesus – we find that we are already seeing glimpses of Bethlehem, even in the midst of our bedlam. Here’s just a glimpse of what the season will hold:

 Sunday, Dec. 11 – We will be led in worship by the children of the church.
services at 10:00am

Wednesday, Dec. 21 – We who grieve will come together in a Blue Christmas service at 7pm.

Saturday, Dec. 24 – Bethlehem will have won over bedlam, and we will celebrate at 4pm and 9pm.
So, beloved, join us through the Advent season. As you find the bedlam piling up in your homes, on your credit cards, and on your calendars, work to see Bethlehem in the midst of it all. God has a history of breaking into the lives of those who have lost track of Love. May you see God, and may you know that you are loved.

Peace,   Pastor  Emily
