The two worship spaces each set the tone for worship at First Church. The Great Heritage traditional service is held in the sanctuary on the main floor of the building. The Chancel Choir and organ lead the music and congregational singing uses the hymnal. Often worship music is augmented by other groups such as bells, vocal or instrumental soloists, or liturgical dancers.

The Bridge contemporary service is held in the fellowship hall in the basement in an informal gathering with round tables. Snacks are provided. The music is lead by the praise band. Congregational singing uses a screen. The sermon is the same in both services. And there is a special children's time in both services.

Our Mission and Vision

Congregation photoWe have a crystal clear mission as United Methodists: to make new disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Knowing that it is only by God’s grace that any of us is saved helps us make room for everyone. We envision being a community of believers who model our lives on the teachings of Jesus; sharing, caring and loving the way Jesus loves. As followers of Jesus, we are prepared to “do a new thing” for the Lord in this ever-changing world, while holding fast to scripture, prayer and other spiritual practices that keep us in close relationship to God and one another.

Since the church represents Christ to the world, we must be sure that we give an accurate picture to those looking on. What was important to Jesus when He was among us should be important to us now. Christ loved, therefore we love. Christ served, therefore we serve. Christ did the will of God, therefore we must make every effort to find out and obey the will of God.

The voted vision statement is as follows:  First United Methodist Church is a welcoming, vital church filled with people of all ages, from all walks of life and stages of faith, growing together to become deeply committed Christians who follow and serve Jesus Christ.
