Parking for Worship in the MAC

The sanctuary doors will remain locked since it is not in use. You may want to rethink your regular parking spot and look for a slot on the back of the MAC, or on the north/JCOC side.  The east and west MAC doors will be open.


Turn your clocks BACK ONE HOUR this weekend for the end of Daylight Savings Time.

This Sunday, November 3
Stewardship Ingathering

This Sunday, November 3, will be the ingathering for our Estimate of Giving Cards. You should have received one with your stewardship letter  several days ago. If not, or if you need another, they are available in the church office. Please bring your completed card when you come forward for communion, and you may lay it on the altar at that time. 

Thank you for your commitment to Jacksonville First United Methodist Church!

Christmas Play Needs Christmas Trees!

Please be on the lookout for Christmas trees of ALL shapes and sizes; we will need LOTS of trees for this year's play! 

They don't have to be purchased new, (unless you would like to donate them) but if you bring one to loan us, please make sure that your name is on it, and we will return it to you ASAP afterwards.

(NOTE: 3 foot minimum size)

As always, thank you so much for contributing to Children's Ministries!
