A SUMMER OF STORIES AT FIRST UMC -- BEGINNING JUNE 15

​A summer series you won't want to miss! Beginning on June 15, join us on Sunday mornings at 9 AM for "Table Talk," an intergenerational Sunday school experience. Scripture stories, conversation, activities and more...plus a summer devotional guide---our gift to you! Also on Sunday mornings, 9 AM Heritage Worship in the Chapel and 10:30 New Traditions Worship in Fellowship Hall. The worship theme is "The Story of God, the Story of Us." Take a journey through the Bible to find the overarching theme of God's story, and learn how it is your story, too. Sunday and Wednesday lunch-time discussion groups will continue the conversation using the book, "The Story of God, the Story of Us," by Sean Gladding. More information on these exciting opportunities will be coming soon!

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!
