“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.

Four Prayers That Don’t Work

Have you ever tried something, and it just didn’t work? You did everything you thought you were supposed to do, and it just didn’t go as you planned? Has that ever happened to you when you prayed? Scripture tells us to “pray without ceasing,” but what happens when our prayers don’t work? Or at least we think they don’t work? Is there something else that could be going on that is working? Could we depend on God that God’s plan for us is still working? We invite you to worship with us this October as we look at “Four Prayers That Don’t Work.”
