  • Blue Christmas Service

    In the midst of all the wonder, joy, and celebration of Christmas, it's easy to forget that there’s likely to be someone for whom the idea of Christmas joy is just not part of the season this year.  We recognize before God and one another the reality that we’re hurting and in pain, that our lives are in turmoil, and we seek help. At this Blue Christmas service, we recognize that we are "blue" or in pain at this time. If you are grieving and need to release it to God, plan to join us at First UMC Chenango Bridge, 7:00pm, for the opportunity to lament to God and give your pain to the Lord.

  • Soup & Scripture

    Soup & Scripture bible study is every Thursday from 11:30 until 1:00pm. First, we eat and fellowship for roughly 30 minutes and then dive into the Word. Join us so you, too, can grow in your discipleship of Jesus Christ.

    Dec. 1 we will begin a new bible study titled “Not a Silent Night-Mary Looks Back to Bethlehem” by Adam Hamilton. Soup & Scripture will begin this 5-session study on Dec. 1. If you are interested in this study but cannot attend during the day, see Pastor to see if an evening study is feasible

  • Hometown Holiday Weekend

    Dec. 2, Hometown Holidays begins in the village, and we will be kicking it off once again with the Live Nativity and the Christmas Story at Moore Library at 5:30pm. Thank you to those who are helping with this event.

  • Blessings in a Backpack

    We are collecting for “Blessing in a Backpack” – the needs are: 5oz. tuna in water, Roman Noodles (Chicken Only), Pudding Cups (vanilla/chocolate), Applesauce cups, Boxed Mac & Cheese, Oatmeal (individual bags). Mark your bags for “Backpack.” Thank you! 

  • Rotary Club Christmas!

    The Mitten/Hat/Scarf tree is up in the Social Room and ready to receive your offerings for the Rotary Christmas Baskets. Items can be purchased or homemade. All items are due by December 11.

    Once again, we are collecting hygiene bags for Rotary which are given out to those in need through the Food Pantry. Please see the example on the table in the Social Room and follow closely. 

  • Hearing Assistance

    Hearing Assist Devices are available. If you’re in need of one, please see the AV Operator in the back of the church.

  • Wanted: worship team support!

    Do YOU feel called to help in Worship? We’d love to have you help out in the following positions: Greeter, Candle Bearer, Lector. Please see Pastor Michele or Winnie Sortman if you would like to learn more about these positions.

  • Church Bottle Drive

    Thanks to all who contribute to the bottle bin in the church parking lot. Those bottles and cans that are marked as a five cent returnable in New York, produce an income for various groups in the church, such as the trustees or the youth going to Sky Lake Camp in the summer. Pictured below are bottles that DO NOT have this label. They are recyclable but they are not five cent returnable items. Please do not put them in the bottle bin. Our last trip to the redemption center netted us $144, which was  one truck full.  Not bad for an hours time, plus travel.
