Welcome to First

“ALL GUESTS who present themselves are to be welcomed as CHRIST.”
— Benedict of Nursia

Welcome! Aligning ourselves with the biblical witness, First United Methodist Church affirms Jesus’ example of inviting all people into God’s loving embrace. We believe that the diversity of our community enriches our journey together in faith. All people (and all means all) are welcome to join in our life together as we strive to live as a profoundly Christ-like church of open hearts, open minds, and open doors and work for the coming kingdom of God.

We worship at 8:15 and 10:30 every Sunday morning in a “blended” style. There are Christian Education opportunities for all ages at 9:30.

Current Sermon Series

Soon after his baptism, Jesus Christ announced that the Kin-dom of God was at hand. We celebrate that as we celebrate his birth and his baptism.  But as we get back to everyday life, we begin to realize that the ordinary world rarely resembles the Kin-dom of God. And how we can be part of something that we can’t see? And what happens when we fall short of the goal? But what if in ordinary life we could start to see Jesus at work in his Kin-dom. Come join as we learn from and follow Christ more and more, as we look for “Glimpses of the Kin-dom.”
