The mission of The United Methodist Church is
"to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."
Our local mission statement is to:
Glorify God through public and private worship.
Make new disciples for Jesus Christ by witnessing to others about God’s amazing grace through word and action.
Grow in spiritual maturity through training and equipping opportunities.
Reach out to others in need; beginning with our community and moving out across the entire world.
Make a difference in the lives of all for whom Jesus died.
You're about to meet a wonderful church! We are excited about being a part of what God is doing in the world and in our community. We invite you to take a look to see if this might be the church family you have always been looking for. We are a diverse group of people who come from many different backgrounds, but we all gather together because of our love for God and our desire to live our faith out in community. It would be our great pleasure to have you come and worship with us this Sunday and share the joy of experiencing God's love.
At First United Methodist Church we offer a style of worship that is uplifting, casual, vital, and a mix of traditional and contemporary. Our worship music is provided by our Praise Team at 10:00 am. The service is "come as you are" (no special "church" clothing required).
If you were to describe our church in one word it would be "comfortable." First UMC is a place where you can gather with other people who truly do accept you as you are. There is no pressure to get involved more than you really want to. However, there are multiple ways to be active in the ministries of our church, and you are always welcome to get as deeply involved as you want.
We are a Safe Sanctuary Church
We take very seriously our obligation to keep our children and vulnerable adults safe. We have created a Safe Sanctuary policy and we screen all of our staff and volunteers who work with children and vulnerable adults through Trak-1-Technologies.
If you would like to volunteer with any of our children's programs, please click the link below to

youth and/or vulnerable adults) costs $21.00.
