This church embraced us with open arms over 2 years ago. There is an overwhelming sense of love and compassion in our church. So many members have given our family such a feeling of belonging - a smile, a hug, conversation: our pastors are very supportive and caring. --Kris Taggart and family
First United Methodist Church extends to all the hand of friendship and faith, believing every person is of sacred worth. We commit ourselves to the hospitality Jesus taught, by creating a place of safety and spiritual sanctuary for people in all stages of their faith journey.
We are enriched by people of all economic or social conditions, gender identities, sexual orientations, political affiliations, biblical interpretations, ages, racial or ethnic backgrounds, mental or physical conditions, and family structures.
We gather for worship, study, and fellowship and we disperse to spread God's love in the community. As we move toward a church of full inclusion, we will continue to engage with one another and celebrate our similarities and differences. We encourage ourselves and challenge our denomination to truly embrace "Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors".
Pastors Art and Pat invite you to join us in the journey of faith. Regardless of your situation, you are welcome within our doors.
