At First UMC, we are striving to be a "Church of Servants" through serving Jesus Christ
in our service to our immediate neighborhood, our community, and our world.

 In-Person Regular Sunday Worship Schedule
(2 Worship Opportunities to Choose From)
Joyful Traditional Worship - 9:00 a.m.
Each Sunday is to be celebrated as a "Little Easter" and we bring that joy into each service.  So often when people hear "Traditional Worship" they think "boring".  Not here.  We respect the "Tradition" of worship with a joy-filled attitude as we share in a variety of hymns from the United Methodist Hymnal, preaching from the pulpit, exceptional musical accompaniment with the pipe organ, and the use of time-honored, biblical-sound liturgies to aid in worship.  The service is held in our beautiful traditional sanctuary with hand-carved oak throughout and large, beautiful stain glass windows.

Casual Service - 11:15 a.m.
Come as you are to this 45-50 minute service that features a relaxed, casual style  as we "update" our traditional hymns to a more contemporary style. 
Pastor Roger sheds the clergy robe, people come in casual attire and we share with one another in worship in a relaxed style. 

Call the church office (712-258-0119), or e-mail us at for more information. 

Our Mission: "A Church of Servants Serving Christ" 
(Our "Unofficial" motto:  We are a hospital of sinners and not a museum of saints.)
