Faith and Fellowship services continue through Friday

In the spirit of shared reflection and community, all are welcome to attend special worship services during the week of March 25 to 29 at the First United Methodist Church of Port St. Joe. 

Community-wide services will be held each day, Monday through Friday, beginning at noon. This ecumenical service, open to all denominations and faiths, will be a chance to pause, reflect, and connect during the Lenten season. 

Each day a different pastor from a Port St. Joe church will deliver a sermon. Some of the pastors scheduled to participate include Rian Adams, of St. James Episcopal Church; Jimmy Hardwood, of First Baptist; Kyle Worthy, of Long Avenue Baptist; and Chandler Robbins, of First United Methodist Church of Port St. Joe.

Following the service, a light lunch of soup and sandwiches will be served, offering a warm and welcoming time of conversation and fellowship. This is an opportunity to meet new people and strengthen existing bonds in the community.

“Lent is a time for introspection and spiritual renewal,” said Rev. Dave Barkalow, senior pastor of FUMC Port St. Joe . “We are honored to host this community-wide service to provide a space for people of all backgrounds to come together and reflect on what Easter means.”

First United Methodist Church of Port St. Joe is at 1001 Constitution Avenue, in Port St. Joe. For more information, contact Rev. Chandler Robbins at (850) 240-5902 or Chandler@psjumc.org.
