About the UMC

Are You Wondering or Interested in the Future of the UMC?

The lay leadership of First United has affirmed that we are and will continue to be a United Methodist Church with a diversity of people, perspectives, and theological stances; shaped by scripture and guided by the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit; holding to the historic and essential tenets of our faith in Jesus Christ. That faith and our love for one another unites us. Rumors, questions, and misleading communications about the United Methodist Church are circulating. You may have been receiving emails urging you to leave or stop supporting the UMC. These include false and misleading information, designed to scare people. They are sent for the purpose of dividing us. Direct questions to Pastor Karen at We ARE First United and we have a future with hope!
