Visiting FUMC

Sunday Morning

Sunday services incorporate great preaching and a creative mix of music within each week’s service and from week to week. Worship begins at 10am and also include a live video stream for those needing or wanting to participate at home. The stream begins around 9:55am and is also available to view following the service.


First United Methodist Church welcomes to the table all who profess their love of Jesus Christ. You need not be a member of this or any congregation to take part.

Come As You Are

Dress at FUMC ranges from jeans and flip-flops to suits and dresses. All are welcome.

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 after Children’s Time in the worship service. Learn more about our Children and Youth Ministries.


Coffee and doughnuts are available after worship, a great time for visiting and connecting.
