First United Methodist Church, Ashmun Street, Monrovia
A POEM IN COMMEMORATION OF THE 195th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH (FUMC) 1822 – 2017
By Togba-Nah Tipoteh
Thank God FUMC is 195
And looking very much alive
Cornering the Streets of Gurley and Ashmun
Glowing in the midst of the tropical sun
Yes, come and see
The glow in FUMC
Come and see the benches of the Old
As they sat hearing the Messages told
Come and see the blocks of the Old
Showing many Stories that were told
Come and hear the Melodies of the Choir
Welcoming the new Bishop Quire
Come and learn from FUMC
Lessons without any degree
When honor went to Father Yahkpawolo
Without money he was in the glow
Honor went not to the money flow
But honor went to the Character Flow
Tis then is the Mark of FUMC
That all near and far can come to see
Monrovia, December 2, 2017
