Beeville’s First United Methodist Church will celebrate its 150th birthday on Oct. 15-16 with a variety of activities open to the community.

Among the Saturday events are a float in the Western Week parade, games and prizes (for adults and children) and free hot dogs at the church after the parade, along with a pumpkin patch in front of the church, 106 E. Cleveland St.

On Sunday, Oct. 16, FUMC will hold a special anniversary service starting at 10 a.m.

Members are encouraged to bring a small cross to represent each family in the congregation.

They will be collected, brought to the altar and blessed during the service, and then hung on large wooden crosses in the welcome center.

Two bishops, the district superintendent, former pastors, assistant pastors and choir directors have been invited to attend the worship service, and a catered dinner will be enjoyed by all present afterward in the gym.

Several historical displays will be available for viewing.

Call the church, 358-3350, for more information.
