GOLDENROD YOGA!
April 16 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 005
 
If you can breathe, you can do yoga. Yoga is not for the flexible, it’s for the willing.  Everyone desires better health and yoga can help. Yoga helps us to find that balanced  harmonious state that is ideal for metabolic healing among other myriad benefits. 

 

Walk to Jerusalem is back!
 
Join members of First UMC and members of the Columbus community on a virtual walk to Jerusalem. Journal your daily Physical & Spiritual activities. You can find more information on our Facebook page at: First UMC Heart & Sole or contact Sandy Martensen in the Church office at 402-564-8463.
