MEET THE PASTOR
Rev. Patty Walker is excited to be the pastor of FUMC Prairie Campus and be a part of this new thing God is doing with this downtown, 150-year-old, historic church – reaching out to new people on the eastern plains! Her passion is connecting people with God and walking through life alongside others. She has served as one of the ministers at the FUMC downtown campus for 6 years. More than anything she would love to take you out for coffee (or even better, out for chips and queso at Fuzzy Tacos!) and hear about your hopes and dreams for this new church. She and her husband, Roger, have three kids – Sam (18), Maggie (15), and Luke (11). Contact Patty at email@example.com or 719-471-8522, ext. 204.
News and Events
Prairie Campus Children’s Choir!
Beginning mid-January, we will hold weekly choir rehearsals on Tuesdays, from 3:40 to 4:45 p.m. in Banning Lewis Ranch Academy, 7094 Cottonwood Tree Drive, 80927. This will be a wonderful outreach to children in our church planting target area and a great way for us to share the incredible gift of sacred music that we enjoy at FUMC downtown with new people. Children in grades 3rd -5th are invited to be a part of this new children’s choir. The choir will have the opportunity to share their songs on an occasional basis (once every 6 weeks or so) at First United Methodist’s Prairie Campus (launching in April 2019 at the Banning Lewis Preparatory Academy). Children from other churches or without a home church are welcome to participate as well. For more information, contact Jeanne Stiles at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rev. Patty Walker.
