First @ Foster

On Sunday, July 24, we will be having a special service for the whole family at Foster Park in Pavilion 1. The pavilion will be open at 10 AM. The service itself will be from 10:30 to 11 AM. All are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy together after the service. There is one refrigerator and one microwave available for those who need it. Please see a FirstMC staff member for access to the kitchen in the pavilion.

We will be live streaming only on our Facebook page.

You can follow along with the service by going to:

We will have Travelin’ Tom’s Coffee Truck at Foster Park from 10 to 11:30 AM for all your coffee needs and more! They accept cash, cards, and apple pay. Check out their menu of yummy drinks!

We hope you invite your friends and neighbors to this fun service at the park!

You are welcome to bring games and stay longer. There is limited parking available so you may want to park at church and either carpool or walk to Foster Park. Please do not drive over or park on the grass at Foster Park as it is a violation of city ordinance and a fine may be incurred.

Board Game Nights

Our next Board Game Night is on Friday, August 19 from 5:30 to 11 PM in the Lower Auditorium. This is for adults only. Please bring a snack and drink to share as well as any board games you would like to play. Stay the whole time or just for a few hours.
