A delightful Christmas play, “WUMC Presents: The Methodist Radio Variety Hour” was seen at First United Methodist Church on December 17 in the fellowship hall. The original one-act play, in 4 segments with commercials, was created by First Church members, Laura and David Pickett. The actors dressed in 1940’s costumes, and read their parts into vintage microphones for a radio show. An “APPLAUSE!” sign told the audience when to clap as Foley artists, stage right, created sound effects like running water, donkey hooves, and thunder.

On a beautiful Saturday morning, October 25, First United Methodist Church invited the downtown Memphis community to a free barbecue lunch in their “outdoor sanctuary” at Poplar Avenue and Second Street.Leading the congregation into this friendly endeavor was First Church member, Jimmy Lamb, after meeting with Senior Pastor Rev. Andy Rambo. Lamb said, “Well, I had the cooker and we saw the opportunity and the need of those who are hungry downtown. I’ve fed big crowds before as fund raisers and at work. It’s no big deal.”

The First Church United Methodist Women, under the leadership of Boots Ashbrook, President, recently contributed a “move in” kit for one deserving member of Wesley Senior Housing. The kit included pillows, linens, laundry baskets, cleaning products, and other necessary household items.
