Advent, Multiplying Our Faith (5 by 10 in 2020)

As members and regular attenders at First United Methodist Church in Prairie Grove we have committed ourselves to five ways we will support our church. These five practices are our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness. During Advent we will be discussing each of these during Sunday worship. Particularly we will be finding out how to multiply these five practices by 10. Imagine the impact we can have on our community if each of us is truly committed to serving our church through these five practices multiplied by 10 in 2020.

And one of the best ways we know how to show love is by getting involved with our neighbors and helping out where we see a need.

If you are new to the area, new to your faith, or a local that is just looking to get more involved, I highly encourage you to start at PGFUMC. We have many opportunities available to become an active participant in helping serve the community and showing love.
