This class is especially geared for you
What does it take to become a member?
To become a member at First Presbyterian is pretty easy. We’re offering a three session New Member class during the Adult Sunday School Hour (8:45am-9:45am) called Presbyterianism for Presbyterians and not so Presbyterians
on Sunday May 5th, 19th, and June 2nd.
The class is meant for anyone including you and longstanding members of First Presbyterian. It’s a way not only for you to get to know others considering joining, but also to get to know some folks that have been around for a while. The class covers the basics of the Presbyterian Church, its beliefs and what makes our congregation unique. It’s fun and discussion based and led by Pastor Beau.
Be there for an exciting series of Sunday morning classes (3 weeks)
beginning Sunday morning at 8:45 am in Room 215.

HIKE IN HOVENWEEP NATIONAL MONUMENT
On Saturday May 18th we plan to hike in the Monument, up a canyon to an outlier ruins. The trailhead is at the main entrance (main ruins and the HQ headquarters). It’s about a 7 mile round trip of moderate walking, through a slot canyon to ruins. Depending on the group a shorter hike or modification is definitely possible. This is an all-day adventure and requires lunch and adequate water and sun protection. Meet at 8:00 am at the church on 12th St to carpool the 1 ½ hour drive to park HQ.
"Love Out Loud is an opportunity to worship with our hearts and our hands by serving others."
A Love Out Loud booklet will be handed out to each family at our sanctuary doors and available in Westminster. For the first time, 63 projects are scheduled from June 1 through June 9. There are 7 churches helping with this project. FUMC handles the administrative portion and started this project 10 years ago.
Directions are in the brochure. You may register on-line (preferred) or put your white card in the baskets by the sanctuary doors or in Westminster by Sunday, May 26 noon.
You do not need to be physically fit to do all the projects. There are many choices, times and days. There is a "come as you are" worship service at 12:30 on June 9 that is going to be a celebration video compiling pictures of people working on the projects followed by a dinner at FUMC.
A RSVP is requested on the white card.
As with our Better Together, this is an opportunity to ask your neighbors and friends to join in helping others in Durango.
Just copy the white card front & back for them.
