One Church, 2 Worship Options

At First United Methodist, each Sunday morning worship experience offers a unique expression of faith.  At 9 a.m., the Heritage Worship service utilizes classic hymns and liturgies in the intimate setting of the Chapel. 

At 10:30 a.m., the New Traditions Worship in the Sanctuary includes a breadth of song and liturgy, and the Chancel and other choirs. The same Scripture-based message will be provided at both services. Join us Sunday morning to worship!
