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 three 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.
