Our congregation invites you to come join us anytime as we seek to serve God in worship, service, and prayer.  You are welcome at First UMC!

Pray, Love, Serve.  

Salute to Our Neighbors at Bethel UMC

February is "Black History Month."  We want to take the time to bless and congratulate our sister church, Bethel United Methodist Church, in the Northside community of Bluefield, Virginia.   Bethel United Methodist Church, begun in 1883, completed its final structure in 1977.  They have a record of significant service and dedication in our community.  We are thankful for their great heritage and the projects we have worked on together.  In this month of celebration of the contribution of our black brothers and sisters to the community and to our country, we lift you up and pray for God to prosper the work of your hands.  

Ash Wednsday Service

We invite you to begin the Lenten Journey with us at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1 as we observe Ash Wednesday with a special service.  We will sing, read scripture, and impose ashes on the forehead in the shape of a cross.  Please invite your neighbors.


Inclement Weather Policy

First UMC has a long standing policy of trying to hold worship regardless of weather conditions. If we decide to postpone services, schedule changes will be listed here, on our Facebook page and on WVVA's Snow Patrol. Please be advised that you are the best judge of your own safety and ability to get out and we ask you to exercise caution before traveling in adverse conditions.
