As far as Betty Fisher can tell, the United Methodist Women groups in churches across Gainesville have never joined hands and come together as one. That’s all going to change today. Gainesville First United Methodist, Antioch United Methodist and St. Paul United Methodist churches on Washington Street and Hunter Street will join for a multichurch thrift sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at St. Paul on the corner of Washington Street and Academy Street. The effort is to raise money for the organization of their choosing.
