Our mission is striving to be a spiritual home that welcomes, equips and sends all into the ministry to which Christ has called us.

To volunteer for any of these activities, call Joan Rodgers, Director of Lay Ministries, at 319-385-1740 and our staff will assist you in getting connected.


A missions fair and auction held each year on the first Saturday of November.  Our site is at Iowa Wesleyan College, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.  At 1st UMC, we assemble layette kits and school kits bound for Nigeria through the sponsorship of the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church.

There are many ways you can serve, and be a part of our family at First United Methodist Church. If you would like to volunteer, please click the link below, fill out the brief form and we will be in contact soon!
