WELCOME! Our Vision? To Love God and Love each other! Our Mission? Seek God! Support Each Other! Serve the World; to make disciples of Jesus Christ!

First United Methodist Church is a dynamic and loving church that is made up of people of all ages and stages of life. Located in the heart of the Village of Newark in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York, we draw from a wide surrounding area.

Many things characterize our church. First, we stress worship with an excellent music program and Biblical preaching. We believe people were made to worship God, so worship is at the heart of all we do.

Second, we stress Sunday School and small groups. Sunday School provides classes for all ages. Several small groups meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. This allows each person to form relationships with others and to progress on their spiritual journey.

Third, we stress the importance of each person being involved in gift-based ministry. Opportunities abound within the church, community, and beyond. More information is available by calling the church office at 315-331-3895.
