My name is Josh Bizzell and I am an ordained elder in the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church.  I am the senior pastor of First United Methodist Church in Warner Robins, GA.  I have been married to my beautiful best friend, Elizabeth, since 2003, and we have two lovely daughters: Claire (b. 2007) and Caroline (b. 2009).

The Word and Spirit is designed to assist the parishioners of First United Methodist and anyone else who visits in their daily journey of discipleship to Jesus Christ.  Word and Spirit Guides are posted here weekly for use in guiding the disciple in prayer, meditation, and Scripture reading.

  1. Welcome to First! My wife Patti and I were married in FUMC on June 5, 1970. We love our church and are excited to welcome our new parsonage family moving in today. We look forward to new and exciting ways to serve God together. May He richly bless you, your family, and your ministry at First for many years. We look forward to meeting all of you this Sunday morning at breakfast. IHS, Joe & Patti Wunderlin

  2. Blessing to you and your ministry–My paternal grandmother always was a lifelong member of a UMC church in Epworth, GA, near Blue Ridge and I have fond memories of her church when we would visit from Tennessee. And both my parents grew up in GA, my mom in Barnesville–so I all my relatives speak beautiful “southern Georgia drawl” 🙂 . I also have good friends in the UMC here in Clayton, NC, though we have typically been in Baptist churches and are now in a Presbyterian congregation–but know that we are one in Christ, yes! Blessings–your Word and Spirit guides are so well done and spiritually rich.
