Wednesday night church-goers at First United Methodist Church of Maryville know how it feels to sing for their supper.
On Sept. 29, the church hosted a talent show that headlined their members as part of their Wednesday night program, which included dinner.
“We have a lot of homegrown talent,” said Ginny West Case, director of adult ministries.
Case said one of the highlights of the events was the local children’s show choir, “All That Jazz,” led by Nikki Andrews, who is a member of the church.
Case said the talent show provided a stage for the children’s choir’s first public performance this year.
She said several members of all ages sang and played instruments during the show. The church’s Wednesday night programs averages between 75 to 150 participants.
“The purpose of Wednesday night at First Church is to give our members an opportunity for fellowship,” said Case.
She said last week, Hallerin Hilton Hill spoke to the group. On Nov. 3, the church will host “Sisters of the Silver Sage.” The singers will perform songs from the “Old West.”
They will also host the Chili Cook-off fundraiser for Camp Wesley Woods on Nov. 17.
The church’s Wednesday night dinners are served at 6 p.m. with the program beginning at 6:30. For more information about the ministries and events at First UMC Maryville, visit their website www.fumc-maryville.org or contact Ginny Case West at 865-982-1273.
