First Methodist Church Joaquin News

November 1, 2017 - The First Methodist Church in Joaquin as well as the City of Joaquin would like to express our thanks to all the great kids and their parents who helped make our 2nd annual Fall Festival a huge success. 

We had two bounce houses, apple bobbing, face painting as well as several games. Folks could roast their own hot dogs on one of our two fire pits or they could just let Pastor Ortigo cook them for them on the grill. Most let the Pastor work and work he did. We had around 200 come to the church on a rainy night to partake in the fun.
