New to First? What to expect.
We invite you to experience life at First Church. “Warm, welcoming, caring, open, involved, genuine, accepting...” These are some of the words that people have used to describe First Church. At First United Methodist we work hard at creating an environment in which people can experience God within a supportive Christian community. Our membership is drawn from all walks of life throughout the Monroe area. We are a church of all ages and stages, from young to old, married or single.
We understand the purpose of church to be threefold: to help people find a relationship to Christ that is authentic and life-changing; to help people to grow and mature in faith; and to help people discover and utilize their own gifts for ministry. Our mission is "To Follow One, Serve All, Share God's Love." We invite you to experience life at First Church.
Our Coffee Hour is 10:00-10:45
Our Sunday Worship is 11am-12pm
We will be ready for your arrival! We welcome visitors, but we will not publicly "call you out" in worship. You will see people of all ages and stages of life. You will see a variety of attire-from blue jeans to coats and ties. Our only dress code is that you wear clothes. We want our doors to be open to everyone!
When you arrive, look for a greeter or usher. If you can't find a greeter, ask anyone for what you need. Please let them know if you need any assistance or information. There are bathrooms in the basement, near the church office on the first floor of the education wing, and on the second floor of the education wing, on the right as you come up the stairs from the lobby.
We are an involved church. Our members don’t just sit in pews. They deliver meals to the homebound, work at The Lord's Harvest food pantry, teach children, and work with scouts. We are in the process of starting a "random acts of kindness" outreach in our community.
We are a church that respects tradition and is open to innovation. Come grow with us!
