Hello there!

Thanks for visiting our website. In today’s world, with so many distractions and competing messages, it takes a lot of courage and intentionality to seek God. We believe we seek God because God seeks us first. God is calling you into a closer relationship with God, the Christian community, and the person God is calling you to be. First United Methodist Church is here to help you accomplish this.  We build bridges for Christ so that, together, we can grow the Kingdom of God. Come, worship with us, and be part of this project of love and redemption.


In Christ,
Pastor Armando
