First United Methodist Church
Plymouth, Indiana

Welcome to Our Church
Worship with Us at FUMC

Today’s scripture shows Jesus and his followers taking a risk as they walk through some grain fields and decide to break off the heads of the wheat in order to get something to eat. This occurs on the Sabbath, and the Pharisees are appalled that they would even travel to the grainfields, let alone actually harvest it for a meal.
If you paid attention during earth science, then you know that the air that the dinosaurs breathed is the same air that we are breathing now. It is the same air that Adam and Eve breathed, and it is the same air that Jesus breathed. When Jesus let go of his last breath, God captured it and blessed it and then set it loose on earth. It grew in strength and volume, until it was a mighty wind, which God sent through that upper room in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost.
The problem is that in today’s world, people spend an awful lot of energy trying to turn the odds to their favor. Waiting on the will of God requires having an awful lot of trust and acceptance. And this isn’t an easy thing because most of us have been betrayed more than once. The good news, though, is that the Lord knows the hearts of God’s people.

Support for Ukraine

The Indiana Conference recently donated $10,000 of its Disaster Relief fund to United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR) and its humanitarian relief efforts as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Bishop Trimble said, “I encourage our churches to give generously to help our brothers and sisters overseas. Through this disaster, we have already seen the value of our Connection, as the aid coming through is helping connect families that need shelter with United Methodists in nearby countries.”

If you or your church have been wondering about tangible ways to help those suffering amid the tragedies we have seen reported, you are encouraged to support the UMCOR response. Remember that one hundred percent of all Advance contributions go to the designated cause.

Donations can be made directly to UMCOR, Advance #982450. Or donations can be made to the Indiana Conference. Or text the word “Ukraine" to 855.389.1555.
