Special Happenings
New series: 
 The Committee, a humorous and thought-provoking outline series produced by Discipleship Ministries of The First United Methodist Church, premieres January 12.   In it, the fictitious Park Grove Community Church has lost its way, lost its pastor and is closing its doors... unless despite itself, it finds a new way of doing church with the help of Chuck.  Can it become a vital congregation again? The Committee examines the struggles congregations face as they look toward a preferred future, and it uses real world topics.  Each episode is approximately 10-13 minutes long. It can be found on  a variety of social media platforms:  Web:  www.chuckknowschurch.com;  YouTube:  ChuckKnowsChurch;  Facebook:  Chuck Knows Church:  Twitter:  ChuckKnows;  Instagram:  ChuckKnowsChurch.
