Like wind, beautiful sunsets and  wheat, United Methodists are everywhere in Northwest Oklahoma! As pastor of the Alva First United Methodist Church, I want to invite you to join us on Sunday morning for learning and worship.  Beginning in September our Wednesday Night Live will resume.  This congregation is eager to share the love of Jesus Christ and to include you in our missional teams.  

Do you know Jesus? We will share with you our stories and you will find him in our prayer, fellowship, learning and worship!  I look forward to meeting you soon-


Pastor Carol





A Wonder-FULL Life

No one wants to talk about it, especially in Church. Yet we are inundated with decisions about it. If you do anything online, you are closely monitored and solicited to do something with this. Companies will spend who knows how many dollars trying to make your choice easier. I have heard that the Millennials are the first generation to not have more of this than their parents. Money. Jesus had a lot to say about the subject as did some of the letters that follow the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) in the Bible.


What gives your life meaning? How does money tie into how you answer that question? We long for a sense of satisfaction that settles us into a life of joy. We are submerged into a culture that creates the illusion that satisfaction is gained through consuming: food, exercise, toys, trips, vehicles, tools, new stuff. Money really isn’t the issue. The issue is how we relate to it, especially in our faith.


For the next four Sundays we will explore money and meaning in our worship series: “It’s a Wonder-FULL Life.” The series is inspired by the book Money and Meaning: Practices for a Heart Center Life by Maggie Kulyk and Liz McGeachy and the classic movie, It’s a Wonderful Life. Each week we will study a scripture that relates to money. I will offer you a guided self -study with questions through the newsletter. It is my prayer that we will grow in our understanding of what God wants for each of us. What does money have to do with that? Let’s see what Jesus and his followers have to say.


I’ll save you a seat—


Pastor Carol
