Welcome to Fredonia First United Methodist (FFUMC) Church website. I'm Pastor Nettie. I've been a part of Fredonia First for a little more than a year now. Initially as the Pastor for Family Ministries and currently serving as full time Pastor.
It's hard finding a church, isn't it? I've been in your shoes before...searching. Searching for answers, searching for direction and searching for a place to find God and community. I would sift through websites (as you are now) and I would go "church hopping" trying to find a place to call home. A place where I could be myself, my imperfect self. Wanting to share this journey of faith with others who like me, are searching for a place. A family friendly place where the focus is on the real relationship with God and not just being religious.
It's hard to find "just the right place." In my church hopping, I learned that no church is going to meet every qualification and no church is going to be the perfect church. People will make mistakes and sometimes even disappoint us. How a church family handles those times makes the difference. Scripture is filled with the experiences of people who've made the same journey we're on. I wanted so to find a community of people to take this journey with. Something more than just me. Sitting in a park worshiping God all by myself. I asked God to lead me to my church family and that He did!
Scripture tell us that God knows us. He made each one of us intentionally and for a specific purpose. Scripture also tells us that "God places the members in the body as He sees fit", and that He brings people (and their unique gifts) together for the common good. It is a great thing being together! Life is easier in community.
Here's a little glimpse of who we are:
We invite you to join us some Sunday morning for worship! Call if you have any questions.
