Welcome to FUMC! We are glad that you are interested in visiting our church. You probably have some questions, and hopefully we will answer most of those questions here in the website. If you have any other questions or need clarification, you can always contact a staff member for further assistance. We hope that you will join us this Sunday and experience First United Methodist Church for yourself.
It is our goal that every visitor feel included and loved as part of the family of God. We have ministries to help individuals build relationships, feel a sense of belonging, and create a community pleasing to God who loves us.
Whether you are married or single, young or old, all of us find our purpose in life and our connection with each other in the wonderful fact that God loves us. God has wonderful plans for you, and we are here to help you discover those plans and to follow God's will.
As you look around, you see many friendly faces, people who love Jesus and have committed their lives to serve him. Our church is committed to serving you and welcoming you to the family.

What can I expect from a worship service?
Be prepared for an upbeat, enthusiastic worship experience with drama, multi-media presentations, and contemporary music. Our pastor presents the truths of the Bible in a compelling manner each week. Dress comfortably! Coats and ties are very rare at FUMC!
Our worship services rarely end with the final amen. Folks seem to hang around, enjoying each other's company and sharing smiles and small talk. Kids are at play and laughter fills the air.
Do you offer programs for children?
We sure do! We provide nursery care and Sunday School during both worship services.
What about teenagers?
On Sunday evenings our students meet at 6:00 pm in room 303 for a time of games, fellowship, food, and Bible study.
