Explore the Bible in 52 weeks
Beginning May 28, Pastor Brian Homan will lead a journey through the Bible each Sunday from Genesis through Revelation. He will explore major themes from each book of the Bible to help everyone get better acquainted with the scriptures we use to form our faith. People new to the faith and those long established as followers of Christ struggle with knowing and using the Bible. This format will help everyone make better use of the gift of God’s Word.
Gather for exercise and fellowship
Liverpool First will offer a walking, hiking and cycling ministry this summer. Walkers may gather in Onondaga Lake Park, Green Lakes State Park, Beaver Lake Nature Center, and the trails in Radisson. For those who like to bicycle, The United Methodist Circuit Riders will host two weekly rides: one an easy family ride; the other a challenging ride for enthusiasts. Improve your fitness during these opportunities for fellowship and prayer. Of course the health benefits are dependent upon whether we stop to enjoy ice cream. Better to exercise and indulge than to indulge without exercise! If you are interested in participating, please contact the church office at 315–457-5180 or email@example.com.
On the first Sunday of every month we celebrate Holy Communion at Liverpool First UMC. We ask that dry and canned food donations be brought to the altar rail before each service in support of the Food Pantry housed at St. Joseph the Worker Church in Liverpool. We will do this every communion Sunday. I hope you will join us in this service of compassion.

Project Christina — toys for children
Would you like to help a child in crisis? Purchase a $5 stuffed toy from Kohl’s where the proceeds go to Golisano’s Children’s Hospital, and the toy is given to the Onondaga County Social Services Foster Care Division. When children are removed from their home a toy will be given to them to help ease their pain. We also accept new stuffed toys purchased elsewhere, books, and reusable child-friendly tote bags. There is a red collection box in Fellowship Hall.
5 Cents Makes a Difference!
As you pick up from summer picnics and parties, think about bringing your 5 cent returnable bottles and cans to either the church, or MSK Returns on Rt. 57 near Wetzel Rd. Our church has an account there, and all money earned goes directly to support our Christian Education programs. All returns must be empty and clean. Our winter check just received totaled $90! Thanks for your donations!
