First Steps

When you visit First UMC we want you to feel right at home as soon as you arrive.  Here’s what you can expect:

Parking: Parking is available in two locations. Our Western lot is just off of Delaware St. and connects to our main entrance. This is where you should go during the week or if you are in need of an entrance that is level with the ground. Our Northern lot is just off of 1st St and can give you access to our larger doors that will lead you straight into our sanctuary.

A Comfortable Environment

We strive to provide an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming.  Come as you are, no dress code!.

While in Worship

Our ushers will give you a bulletin when you arrive. In it you will find ample information to guide you through the worship service as well as information about current program activities. An offering will be collected during the service; however, you are our guest in worship, so all you experience is our gift to you. We don’t expect anything from you. Instead of a financial gift, you may share your name on a communication card that can be found in the pew and let us know any ways we can better serve you. You may place these communication cards in the offering plates or hand them to Pastor Nathan as you leave to enter the world.

After Worship Service

If you choose to share your name or any other information with us, we will pray for you, and we will also send you a “Hi there” note and a small gift with the goal of being friendly and to helping you make connections at a pace that is comfortable to you. Membership is not required to share in the ministry, service opportunities, groups, etc.

There is nothing like visiting churches and seeing where God wants you to belong. Blessings on the journey to find your church home!
