Meetin'-eatin'-travelin'-seniors (mets)

METS is a ministry of First United Methodist Church that meets once a month. If you like eating good food, traveling to cool locations and meeting other senior adults, METS is for you!

METS is On-The-Road Again


To allow more people to participate in our trips, we need several church members who are willing to drive their own vehicles and take several others on our trips.  If you can do this, please fill out paperwork in the church office as soon as possible for a background check which is required by Conference. 


If you have any questions please contact Sharon by email at:
