Welcome to Kewanee First United Methodist Church
You are invited to connect with myself (Pastor Kevin Drane) and
my wife, Marlene, as we begin our ministry at Kewanee First United Methodist
Church. We are excited to be a part of the Kewanee community and look forward
to connecting with all our fellow “Kewanee-ans”. As I consider the
opportunities that Kewanee First allows its members, as well as its guests,
connecting is the first thought that comes to my mind.
At KFUMC you have an opportunity to CONNECT with our Triune God, CONNECT with
one another and CONNECT with the Kewanee community. Our worship is devoted to
Connecting with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Come and hear your new pastor
and meet his wife… we would love to connect with you!
At KFUMC you will have an opportunity to GROW in your relationship with God,
Jesus & the Holy Spirit, GROW in your relationship with other worshippers
at First UMC and Grow in your love for the community we know as Kewanee. At
KFUMC we have the opportunity to GROW in our knowledge of God but also to GROW
experientially in Christ. To learn about God (head knowledge) is important but
to be in relationship with Jesus and in touch with the Holy Spirit is crucial.
Come GROW with us as Christian disciples.
Lastly, at KFUMC we have an opportunity to SERVE together. We will strive to
SERVE God, SERVE our community and actually, in our own small way, SERVE the
world through our efforts here in Kewanee, Illinois. What a privilege it will
be for us to SERVE here at KFUMC. We sincerely hope you will join us in Serving
God, the Kewanee community and the world.
Come and see! Worship with us. Worship is for everyone who longs for God –
believers as well as those who are seeking… seeking a new paradigm, seeking a
peace that surpasses all understanding and seeking true and lasting
relationships. Worship is about honoring, praising and glorifying our Lord and
Savior. It is a time when we gather together to experience the presence of the
Holy Spirit, and express our joy, our awe, and our heart-felt gratitude. God,
the originator of generosity, will bless the investment of your time at
Saturday or Sunday worship. Our Almighty God heals us physically, emotionally
and spiritually. God pours his grace upon us. God’s grace is sufficient for
