As per the recommendations of the Iowa Annual Conference and the CDC, we request the wearing of masks for worship at Iowa Falls 1st UMC. Please note the language of request and not require at this time. However, if the current trends in Iowa and Hardin County continue, that language may change, and we may need to alter our current plans for Rally Sunday September 12. Church Council will determine if and when any extra precautions will be taken. We all wish that COVID-19 would become history, yet in the present, we will do what we can to keep one another safe and put this pandemic in the past. Be well. Be safe. Be vaccinated.

We are so excited to introduce a new way to gather at First UMC!  “Sounds Like Harmony” will be a combination of music and a light luncheon for anyone who appreciates good music, good food, and fellowship with friends. The first of what we hope will be ongoing dates, will be Monday, Sept. 27, from 11:00 – 12:00 in the Garden Room.  Barb Shultz will play piano selections and perhaps even a sing-along before and after a salad luncheon. The meal will include salad, dinner roll, fruit, dessert, and drink.  If you choose, a free will donation will be appreciated. Because this is a new adventure, how it develops depends on how you respond!  If transportation would be an issue for you, we have transportation available.  Please direct questions to Linda Scallon, 641-373-2601, or Carolyn Welden, 641-648-3233.Especially this first time—Reservations are Required!  Call the church office (641-648-4607) by Wednesday, Sept. 22, to reserve your seat.
