Welcome to our church web page.
Greetings, First Church Faith Community,
"To everything there is a season..." Ecclesiastes 3:1
For the past 10 years I have had the honor and privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor of First United Methodist Church of Hyattsville. On Sunday, April 26, at both of our worship services we announced that Bishop Marcus Matthews and the Cabinet of the Baltimore-Washington Conference are appointing me to serve as the Lead Pastor at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church of Highland,in Howard County, Maryland effective July 1, 2015.
We have journeyed together for 10 years; growing, worshipping, learning, witnessing, praying, living out our purpose and mission, serving God and God's people. Now our season of ministry together will come to and end on June 30, 2015. I am a better pastor and person because of the time that we have had together.
Bishop Matthews will be announcing the new Senior Pastor to First Church within the next few weeks. Let us be in prayer for Bishop Matthews, Rev Joe Daniels, our District Superintendent, our Staff Parish Relations Team and for one another during this time of new beginnings. Over these next few weeks we will continue to be in ministry together, serving hand in hand as we celebrate, reflect and give Thanks to God for our journey. My prayer is, that for the time that was ours, we have Glorified God!
On July 1st, 2015 The First United Methodist Hyattsville Maryland will welcome Rev. Dr. Yvonne Wallace Penn as the new Senior Pastor.
