News and views of the First United Methodist Church in Cross Plains, Texas

October 1 Bishop Chamness will preach at the Presbyterian Church and then we will go to the Community Center for a catered meal, special music and a program celebrating the history of our church and all the churches that have joined us in the past 120 years. Even Jimmielee Payne and Lois Garrett are planning on being with us.

The parsonage is coming along and complete plans and engineering specifications are in the hands of several contractors who are preparing bids and estimates for the church. It takes time to design the metal frames and detail all the construction items for the building. By the first week in October those bids should be coming in and the committee will be selecting a contractor soon.
