Welcome

First United Methodist Church is a "Traditional Church for a Contemporary World." We seek to proclaim the historic Christian message in ways that will reach today's world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to help people discover and develop their Christian faith and then provide opportunities to be deployed in witness and service.

9 a.m. service is a Traditional worship service where traditional hymns are sung from hymnals, a choir is present, along with a pipe organ. 11 a.m. is a Contemporary service in our Family Life Center with a praise band leading worship. 

Church can happen anywhere.  It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
