First United Methodist Church is a diverse group, and their worship services on Sunday mornings are reflective of that diversity. Sanctuary services are classical worship experiences with a beautiful pipe organ, a full chancel choir, and the liturgical setting familiar to many who have grown up in the mainline tradition of Christian worship. We also have The Open Door service, which is more contemporary in worship style and is held at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Along with our Sunday worship experiences, First United Methodist has a full menu of weekly and seasonal activities that include groups of all ages in our church and our community.
