First United Methodist Church: more than 150 years

Jenny Schnabel

Are you in touch with your soul?

Do you have a relationship with God?

Or is it just rock and roll ?

Do you have a church ?

What are you seeking ?

The First United Methodist Church

I will mention

In a manner of speaking.

The 1st Church in Nevada

Now, that’s a fact.

With a spirit of “Open Hearts,”

“Open Minds” and “Open Doors”

To be exact.

It’s been in Carson City

More than 150 years, yes, true.

They have two wonderful Pastors, Rob

With his wife, Dixie, too.

It’s not about religion

Because God, he loves us all.

Church is just a place to go

To celebrate the call.

It’s about building a sense of community

With love that transforms lives

Forgiveness and acceptance

We are sinners

And must be revived.

There is “Small Blessings” preschool.

You really ought to see.

Also, in December

They do a drive through “Nativity.”

I must sum this up.

You should give it a try

Just walk in the Methodist Church

You’ll have a Sunday, high!

The First United Methodist Church is located at 212 N Division St. Sunday Worship Services: 8 a.m.-Informal, 9:30 a.m.-Contemporary and Family, 11 a.m.-Traditional. For more visit http://www.carson1umc.org
