Rev. Pat Allin First United Methodist Church -- Moweaqua, IL

We will be having Church in the Sanctuary.

All special notices will continue to be posted below as they become available.

In Person Services in the Sanctuary


First United Methodist Church Cross

Both the Moweaqua and Sanner Chapel congregations will be worshipping in our sanctuaries at our usual times of 8:30 am for Sanner and 10:15 am for Moweaqua. 

The IGRC still suggests that masks are recommended even if you are fully vaccinated, and especially for those not vaccinated as you enter the building and move around. If you are seated in your pew you may remove your mask. Distancing is also recommended to continue, as is hand washing. Thank you all for your vigilance in following the rules for safety.

If you have any questions please direct them to Pastor Pat and/or the task force members as we work to follow the guidelines we have been given to keep everyone healthy and safe.

There will continue to be a time of scripture, prayer and a message live on Facebook at 9:45 a.m. Sunday mornings until further notice. The Facebook link is listed below on this page.  You can also continue to follow the self-guided worship services listed below.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to each and every person who has been affected by the Tornado's in the US recently. Donations are needed to help everyone from babies to the elderly who have been affected. Please remember you can always donate with confidence to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).

Donating to UMCOR you can be sure that your money will go where you want it to go. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible gifts go to the emergency or project that you designate. UMCOR's administrative costs come from other sources, especially the United Methodist One Great Hour of Sharing offering.
