  • New Men’s Groups Starting

    There is interest among men in our congregation to start new men’s groups. These groups could be service oriented, or for Bible study or faith building, for widowers, or for socializing and building friendships. A group could combine some or all of these purposes. Are you interested? Do you want to help get one started? Join us on February 15 at 7pm to share ideas and get connected.

  • Positive Discipline For Children

    February 25th 10-11AM in the First United Methodist Church Of Hendersonville Barber Christian Life Center

      Do you ever feel like you are the only parent in this world that is having difficulty with disciplining your child? Do you feel like no matter what you do you don’t get the outcomes you desire from your child when they misbehave?

         You are not alone. All children have times in their life when things feel overwhelming. This is when the behaviors we would rather not see come about. One way in which we can teach children how to react and communicate is through teaching Positive Discipline.

         What is Positive Discipline? It is a way in which parents and caregivers can let children know what behaviors they expect from them both at home and in society by rewarding good behavior and having meaningful consequences for undesirable behavior.

         First United Methodist Church will be hosting a Positive Discipline course for any caregiver who would like to learn more about the subject and ways to help children in their care. You can sign up here for our Saturday, February 25th seminar at 10:00 to 11:00am presented by the Director of FUMC Weekday School Erin Holbert. The cost is $20.00 per individual and $30.00 for two people. We look forward to seeing you there. 

  • Solar Panels And Parking

    For the next few weeks and weekends, our staff/ handicap parking lots will be used as a staging ground to install solar panels. We are excited to be able to produce clean energy while allowing the church to reduce operating expenses. Thank you for your patience while we make these improvements to the church. Once the staff/handicap parking lot is open again we will send out a notification.

  • Ash Wednesday is February 22

    The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, which falls on February 22 this year. Ash Wednesday is a day of repentance, reflection, and receiving God’s grace through a worship service of prayer, meditation, and the sign of the cross on our foreheads made from ashes. It is a moving and meaningful time of worship. FUMC will have two Ash Wednesday services that day: at noon and 6:00pm. All ages are invited to participate as we thank God together for the Lord’s mercy, forgiveness, and love.

  • Lenten Concert Series

    Lenten concerts will be offered on Tuesdays from 12:15-12:45 pm in the Sanctuary starting February 28th. Come and go as you can for a time of meditation and music. Michael S. Brannon will play the organ for all concerts. Others musicians will perform on the piano, clarinet and other instruments.
