Upcoming Fundraisers

We have met our fundraising goal! The remaining scheduled events (yard sale and pancake breakfasts) have been cancelled or rescheduled to support the general church budget.


Members of the Lincoln First United Methodist Church choir will sing on November 27 at New York City’s Carnegie Hall. Eleven members from the Lincoln church and two from the Ellsworth United Methodist Church will join over two-hundred other singers from around the country in this concert produced by Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY).

The invitation came from DCINY’s Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Dr. Jonathan Griffith, after discovering a video of the Lincoln choir’s recent Christmas concert on YouTube. Dr. Griffith stated: “The Choir from First United Methodist Church of Lincoln received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers as well as the exceptional quality of their audition recording. It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York. These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community.”


The singers will spend 5 days and 4 nights in New York City in preparation for their concert which will feature “Christmas Dreams,” a cantata written by Joseph Martin and Heather Sorenson.


Thank you for your support in helping us meet our fundraising goal. We are grateful for you and your willingness to help make this dream come true. God bless you!
