Welcome

All are welcome here at Seattle’s First Church! We are a warm and welcoming congregation where you can meet people, celebrate life, grow deeper and stronger, and turn your energy into action that transforms the world. You’re invited to worship with us on Sunday mornings, join a choir, try a small group, or jump right in and help us care for people in need in our neighborhood.

For directions and information on free Sunday parking, see our website. Every Sunday morning you can volunteer with us to serve food to hungry people. Worship or work with us . . . . we see both activities as a foundation for a deep and meaningful life.

Established in 1853, First United Methodist Church is Seattle’s oldest congregation. In late 2007 we sold our historic building at the corner of Fifth and Marion and our current church building was consecrated in 2010. Our focus as a congregation is simple: Love, Grow, Serve. Those three words describe both our mission as a church and our recipe for joyful living. Dive in - you’ll never be the same.

Over 160 years of ministry to Seattle, and we invite you to join us.

We'd love to stay connected. Here are a few ways: FacebookTwitterCalendar

We’re are both Seattle's newest and oldest church - first established by Seattle' first settlers in 1853, our modern congregation now meets in Seattle's newest downtown church building in the shadow of the space needle.

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.

What We Offer

Our emphasis is on three areas: Love, Grow, Serve. Christian faith begins in worship and devotion of God (Love), moves through a spiritual journey of faith (Grow), and bears fruit in acts of compassion and justice toward others (Serve).
