The Fredonia First United Methodist Church has introduced a new theme, “We’re all about Family” led by Pastor Annette “Nettie” Puleff.
The 10:00 Church service with the Congregation includes a “Children’s Moment” before leaving for Children’s Church.  For many adults in the congregation, this Children’s Moment is their highlight, too!  There is also nursery care for infants and toddlers. Additionally, Pastor Nettie has a Women’s Bible Study for women of all ages on the last Wednesday of the month. 
Pastor Nettie may look familiar since she can be found at her South Dayton The Mustard Seed restaurant on Friday's.  If you  have been seeking a church (especially if you are raising a family) please give us a try.  “We’re all about Family” and at Fredonia First UMC, we extend an arm of welcome.

Pastor Emeritus

Richard Ricker

I am an ordained elder in the Western New York Conference of the United Methodist Church.  I retired July 1, 2004.  I served as Interim Pastor from August 2006 to June 2007 at Fredonia First United Methodist Church.  On March 15, 2009, I was consecrated as Pastor Emeritus and Visitation Pastor at Fredonia.  When called, I am open to preaching at other churches in our community.  I am confident that there are no small churches and no great preachers, only our great God!  My focus and goal is to be an encourager in the Christian faith!  At your convenience, please allow me the joy of hearing about your faith in Jesus Christ.  Oh Yes!  Amen!  To God be all the glory!!!
