Our Mission

Our mission at First UMC is to lead people in new life with Jesus. This is primarily about a relationship, a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. And we believe the clearest way to cultivate that relationship and to see our faith, isn't in what we say but in how we live.

 

Unlike churches which spend a lot of energy focusing on doctrines and dogma, we tend to focus on 5 Practices (or 5 habits) that help us grow in new life with Jesus: Worship, Grow, Serve, Give & Invite.

5 Practices that Unite Us:

To become a member of First UMC we ask you to attend Discover First to learn more about the church, and then we ask you to support the mission of First UMC through 5 Practices:

  1. To attend worship weekly unless we are sick or out of town; 

  2. To grow in faith through personal prayer and meet with a spiritual growth group; 

  3. To give a tithe (or if that is not possible at this moment to give in proportion of our income and be actively working towards tithing); 

  4. To serve regularly (at least quarterly) outside the walls of the church in missions and inside the church through ministry teams; and 

  5. To frequently (at least monthly) invite someone who isn’t actively involved in a church to worship at First UMC.
