First United Methodist Church has a forty-year tradition of celebrating the Lenten season with a series of luncheons and meditations by featured speakers from churches throughout the city. In 2020 the series was interrupted by the pandemic, with only three of the six planned meals and meditations taking place. At that time, who would have thought that the 2021 Lenten series would also be at risk? 

Despite having to forego the greatly enjoyable community luncheons because of current COVID restrictions in our community, the Lenten meditations will continue this year.

Each Wednesday leading up to Holy Week and Easter, these messages will be posted: February 24 by the Rev. Kim Ratliff; March 3 by Gary Caveness, the Executive Director of the Lighthouse Foundation; March 10 by the Rev. Trey Lambert, pastor of Gaines Chapel United Methodist Church; March 17 by the Rev. Dennis Smith, pastor of First Baptist Church; and March 24 by the Rev. John Garrott, pastor of FUMC.

These messages will be recorded and made available via YouTube, Facebook (First United Methodist Church–Corinth, MS), and our website (www.fumc-corinth.org) to the general public.
