Dear friends, let’s love each other, because love is from God, and everyone who loves is born from God and knows God.1 John 4:7
Join us for worship!

The Pastor’s Welcome
My wife, Janet, and I were attracted to First Church for its outstanding church music program. We attended Christmas services and knew immediately we had found a home church. We love worship, volunteering, and our mission outreach. Janet enjoys the choir and being able to play the organ when needed and I chair the Perpetual Endowment Fund Trustee Group. It’s a great fit!
I come to FUMC because this is the first church I’ve been to where I feel at home. As soon as you walk through the doors, you are showered with love. I also love how everyone treats each other like a massive family.
When my wife and I arrived in the area and began our search for a new church home, we tried 4 others before FUMC. The downtown location made us hesitate but there's plenty of parking. We've never left! The majesty of the music and the building, coupled with truly warm, open people embraced us. Best music in the city! And downtown is a great place to meander after the service!
