From the Pastor
Rev. Steve Ramsdell
"The last 19 years of our ministry at First Methodist has been eventful, and we've experienced many crossroads together, and we'll begin our 20th year together on May 1st, 2017.    After much prayer, conversation with my mentors and friends, many conversations with my family, after dialogue with our Bishop and District Superintendent, I'll be stepping down as the Senior Pastor of the First United Methodist Church of Waco at the end of June.  June 30th will be our last day, and June 25th will be our last Sunday in the role we have loved so much for so long.  As that 20th year begins, and as we look toward the change that is coming I believe that it is my continual quest to stay focused on the horizon, watching where God is moving, and I also believe the next five months can be the best of our ministry together.
