First United Methodist Church is an intergenerational church.  Our mission and vision are summarized in our statement “Love, Follow, Serve”.   We desire to be a people who love  God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love others as God has loved us through Jesus Christ.  All are welcome to express their love for God and others in and through worship, companionship, and meeting needs.  Jesus calls us to follow  in His way of living, so we want to facilitate each person’s growth in being devoted followers of Jesus.  That means becoming more like Jesus.  Like Jesus, we want to equip His followers to serve  others in all sorts of ways.  To accomplish this quest, we value simplicity, community, spiritual transformation, and experiencing life as a mission worth living and dying for.
