Pastor Melody Adams has been an Associate Pastor since July 2016. Worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ and serving him is my primary passion. I grew up in upstate New York on a dairy farm. My late husband was an Arapahoe, NE native and USAF pilot. I served the Nebraska Annual Conference as a delegate to General and Jurisdictional Conferences from 2000-2011, and I am currently going through Course of Study at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, IL. Before coming to Kearney First United Methodist Church, I was appointed to the Shelton United Methodist Church in Shelton, Nebraska.
