First United Methodist Church of DeWitt is excited to announce a new ministry, Walk by Faith! Our goal is to collect new or like new shoes for the children in our community in need of good shoes throughout the school year. We will begin by collecting donations  in order to fill the Dragon Closets at our Schools in time for the new year. All sizes and genders are acceptable, however our primary focus will be for Children’s sneakers sizes 1-8 (mostly sizes 3-5).






Loma Essex Ministry

The  UMW began a "Loma Essex Ministry" to support our college students for which Loma had a great concern.   It was Loma's wish to keep in touch with these students from our church.  Please inform us of any change in your student's mailing address or if you have a freshman student to add to the list by calling the church office at 870-946-2328 or emailing the church at  
We ask for your prayers that this ministry will be the blessing we intend and we thank you for your support.

Pentecost, occurring  the 50th day after Jesus’ resurrection, is the Church's celebration of the gift of the Holy Spirit.   Many, in fact, think of Pentecost as the "birth day" of the Church, because it was on that day that we received the gift that has made it all possible.  We celebrate the season of Pentecost longer than is traditional – from the 50th day of Easter until the Labor Day Sunday, when Kingdomtide season begins.
The liturgical color for Pentecost is red symbolizing the blood of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Spirit.
