Groat Grant money was used to purchase several upgrades for the church including a new heating plant, carpeting in the nursery and youth areas, and new furniture for the youth group. The youth at First UMC are flourishing, meeting weekly for faith, fellowship, food, and fun. A dedicated group of volunteers prepares kid-friendly dinners each week. As for the new heating, it is wonderful to be comfortable and not have to worry about an unreliable system and broken water pipes throughout the building!
Thank you to everyone involved in the decision to fund our projects!
