Pastor

Laura Blevins

Send Email
Hello, I'm Pastor Laura Blevins and I came to the First United Methodist Church of Excelsior Springs in June of 2015.  My husband, Jeremy, is also a pastor and currently serves the wonderful people of the Richmond United Methodist Church.  Jeremy is a great partner and is always putting up with me talking about him in my sermons.  Together, we have two amazing kids and one ornery golden retriever.
 
One of the best things about my position at the First United Methodist Church is that I get to watch God working through the amazing people at my church.  I am extremely interested in history and have found so much wonderful history to celebrate both here at the church and in Excelsior Springs.
 
I love to laugh and tell jokes (all of which I think are hilarious).  I also enjoy to read and play a mean game of Apples-to-Apples.  Most importantly, I love my family and always look for ways to have fun together. I've told you a little bit about me, now I would love to hear about you. Please e-mail me and let's get to know one another.
 





Administrative Assistant

Karen Glamann

Hi, my name is Karen Glamann.  I am originally from Sioux City, Iowa but now live in Kearney.  I have worked as the Administrative Assistant  here at the First United Methodist Church for almost 8 years, beginning in October 2008.

My favorite thing about the church is the people.   I truly enjoy the relationships with my friends here at First United Methodist Church and I enjoy helping people.

I am married to my wonderful husband, Trent and and we have two children.  We live in Kearney and we have a furry child, a golden retriever, named Sky. My favorite hobby is reading and learning to sew.  I love spending time with my family.

I organize and orchestrate the business operations here at the church. I assist Pastor Laura with her scheduling and other responsibilities. I also am responsible for the scheduling of meetings and events here at the church. When you call the church, I'll be the one on the other end of the line! If you have questions or need assistance with anything here at the church, I'll be happy to help.






Communications Director

Brian Rice

Hi, I'm Brian Rice, communications director for the First United Methodist Church. I've been part of this church family most of my life, but recently returned to this church with my lovely wife, Christi, and youngest daughter, Emily. I have two other children, Brad and Laura, who are well on their way to becoming young, talented responsible adults of their own.

My "day job" is newspaper publisher of The Excelsior Springs Standard and Town & Country Leader, but my love is to use my talents of creativity, writing and graphic design for God's purpose and to help our church reach out to as many people as possible. My dream is to not only help our church family grow closer together, but to help everyone in our community get a chance to learn about God and to learn what a difference He can make in their lives. Plus, I get to design some really cool stuff!

I love to draw cartoons and thus my family jokes around a lot! I've been a fan of Star Trek all my life and so I've become quite fond of technolgy and all the gadgets that now exist because of ST -- especially anything that begins with a lowercase "i". If you have news to share or need information about our church, I'm the guy to contact!
