Forty days for the kingdom continues through Holy Week

The focus on Forty Days For the Kingdom began Ash Wednesday at Fayetteville First United Methodist Church and will continue through Holy Week as congregants prepare for Easter through self-reflection, outreach, and a conscious focus to “let the kingdom of God come first.”

Sunday worship at 8:30, 9:45 and 11 a.m. each week has focused on something new — new creation, birth, church, eyes, and people. As the church begins Holy Week, the Palm Sunday reminder of a new king will be celebrated with a palm processional by the children at all services. Read More»
