Daily Readings

The daily readings expand the range of biblical reading in worship and personal devotion by providing daily citations for the full three-year cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship. ~ www.umcdiscipleship.org

A SPECIAL THANK YOU
 This past Sunday, January 19, 2020 marked the fifth consecutive year that First United Methodist Church of Ellwood City has hosted the Worship & Celebration of the Life & Legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The inaugural service was held on January 17, 2016.
The Western PA Conference of the United Methodist Church (WPAUMC) lifts up Dismantling Racism as one of its Five Areas of Focus.  The Worship & Celebration service is a way to not only commemorate and give thanks for the justice work of Dr. King, but also to remind and to proclaim that it is the responsibility of all disciples of Jesus to do our part in continuing that work.
On behalf of the Ellwood City Ministerium, the churches and community of Ellwood City and the Butler District of the WPAUMC, Pastor Angelique Bradford and the people of First United Methodist Church would like to express our gratitude to Rev. Pat Cleary and Rev. Wayne Cleary of spearheading the development and launching of this very special service, which has been a blessing to us us.
Thank you, Pat and Wayne!

We are a "Five Practices" Church.  In all that we do everyday, as individuals and as a congregation, we try to live out the "Five Practices of a Fruitful Congregation ":  Radical Hospitality, Passionate Worship, Intentional Faith Development, Risk Taking Mission and Service, and Extravagant Generosity.  The Five Practices for a Fruitful Congregation Model was designed by Bishop Robert Schnase.

The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.   First United Methodist Church believes the local church provides the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs.   Jesus' words in Matthew 28:19-20 provide us with our mission:   "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you."
