First United Methodist Church is a vibrant group of people including children, youth, young couples, and wise older adults involved and active in the church. We proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and provide opportunities for persons of all ages to grow spiritually and become involved in loving service to others. We are dedicated to spreading the love of Jesus Christ through mission and outreach. Through the work of our local church and the larger connection of the United Methodist Church, the good news of Christ is multiplied and spread throughout the world.
Worship is passionate and exciting! Music is important to us and is presented in a variety of ways – choir, small groups, individuals, instruments, organ, praise team, and bell choirs.
The church was founded in 1870 and continues to be an active part of the community. We have an historic relationship with Southwestern College, with many faculty, staff, and students who attend and are active members. Our intern program that has been mentoring students - as well as contributing to our church family – for almost 20 years.
Sunday School is offered for all ages - children, youth and adults. We believe that it is vitally important for a person’s spiritual development to be involved in some sort of small group – Sunday School, Bible Study, United Methodist Men and Women, etc. We offer a number of ongoing and short-term studies throughout the year.
We would like to invite you to come and experience Christ at First United Methodist Church. You will experience the warmth of Christian fellowship, as well as many opportunities for spiritual growth and renewal. Please come and join us!
