First UMC’s purpose is to grow disciples who make disciples. It is just that simple! We are not just people getting together to sit in a pew on Sunday mornings, although our wonderful worship services revive and renew our spirit. The church is about helping people move from the sanctuary to the community with a message of hope and grace that changes people's lives.

At First UMC, we believe that every time we come together—whether in a worship service, a small group gathering, or a Bible study—God is there and can speak a word that has the possibility to change lives forever. Everything we do at First UMC has the purpose of helping people move to a place in life where each person may receive a fresh word from God. And this is exciting!

While we can't do the work for you, we certainly can enjoy putting together activities, services, and programs that will help everyone take God's word and apply it to life.
