Joining First United Methodist Church means you'll be surrounded by a second family who will be there for you and your loved ones through the highs and lows that come with life.
Our mission is to grow disciples of Jesus Christ and equip them for ministry in the world.
All are welcome to come to hear the Word of the Lord while in turn giving back to their community!
We want to make it as comfortable as possible for you to connect.
You will not be asked to stand up or to wear a red ribbon, but you may be greeted and welcomed by any number of our church family.
Wear whatever you feel comfortable in as you worship God. We have no dress code - so dress comfortably. You'll feel right at home wearing anything from shorts, to jeans, to business casual.
We are passionate about children and students learning about Jesus in a way they can relate to! We offer student ministries and children’s programming each Sunday and throughout the week. We look forward to meeting you and your family!

Our child's safety is important to us, which is why we use KidCheck as our check-in system to register all children and youth.
Nursery care is available in our staffed nursery every Sunday during worship services.
We practice open communion. You do not need to be a member of First Church to participate. Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month.
We have two types of services to meet nearly everyone's needs. The contemporary service is a relaxed atmosphere. We have a group of amazing musicians who enhance your worship experience with contemporary Christian music. The service begins at 8:30 am.
The traditional service is held in our beautiful Sanctuary. The stained glass windows and rich organ sounds lead you in tried and true hymns. This service begins at 11:00 am.
