The ways we meet God are as diverse as each personality, but fall into some general categories: Encountering the mystery of God, learning the truths of God, fellowship with the people of God, being sent into the world to serve in the name of God.  All of these are a part of each service.

Stay informed: Weekly Messenger, Facebook, our website, and KILJ.

This may change if the health situation reverses, so PLEASE stay alert to messages, emails, and announcements. If you are willing to help make this service happen, please let the office know where they are maintaining a listing.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay in love with God.

Please know that Pastor Dave and the leadership of First UMC are praying for you, our community, state, country and world as we journey through these trying and uncharted times together. May God bless you and keep you all, until we are able to meet together once again.
