"I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect."

Romans 12:1-2 

Through Nurture, Outreach, and Worship we find
Spiritual TRANSformation.

As you seek to know God you are invited to join a small group at Fayetteville First United Methoidst Church. Small groups meet most days of the week and are places where we discover what it means to offer our minds, our hearts, our bodies, and our gifts to God as our holy and living sacrifice.  To sign up for one of the small groups below click here.
