Rev. Dr. Sarah B. Kalish
Senior Pastor

Welcome to the Worship Services of First United Methodist Church. The doors of God's church are always open to you. If you are visiting, you are welcome. If you are a member, you are expected.
Your church is alive and active! Come and be a part of God's work.

From the Bishop

Updated Guidelines for In-Person Worship & Ministry During COVID-19:
As faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in the midst of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to our Biblical mandate to "love our neighbors as ourselves" and our Wesleyan call to “do no harm.” In doing so, we seek ways to engage faithfully in worship, study, and ministry while ensuring the health and safety of our members and communities. We do not recommend returning to indoor worship at this time. Continue hosting online, drive-in, or outdoor worship services while following CDC, state and local guidelines, including handwashing, wearing masks, and observing physical distancing rules.
