Welcome to First United Methodist Church, "The Coppertop Church"
We are a church that welcomes all. No matter who you are, there is a place in our church for you. If you are new to the community, we hope you check us out. If it has been years since you’ve been inside a church, we hope you take a chance on us. Come and experience God’s love in a community of people trying to live out that love.

Children Are Welcome
We love children in worship and make time for them. We have a resting room for young children and parents, child care for toddlers and two's, and children's activities downstairs after Children's Time in the worship service.
Coffee and doughnuts are available after worship, a great time for visiting and connecting.
