Welcome to


First United Methodist Church 



Winning the lost

Building Believers

Serving Others

Lives Transformed 


  Our mission, based on Matthew 28:19-20, is to make disciples

for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

We invite you to come worship, learn, and build friendships here at
First United Methodist!!!

  Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ!


June is here!     

As I’m sure you’ve heard before and will hear again:  Don’t take a vacation from God this summer!  Our vows extend into the whole year, not only September through May. 

Do you have a child or grandchild heading off to college in the fall?  Katie Heckel offers 10 tips to help them prepare:

1)     Join a campus ministry.  These are meant to help our kids stay in touch with God and other Christians.

2)    Their job is to be a student.  There are expectations and responsibilities.  Being a student comes first.

3)    Explore their call.  Each of us has a calling, being a minister no matter what the future holds in a job or career.

4)    Start forming healthy habits now.  The beginning of college is a good time to make some life decisions that will keep regrets to a minimum.

5)    Decide who you want to be before going.  What kind of person do they want to be when they go to college?  Protect their reputation.

6)    Be in relationship with people, not just one person.  College is not the wedding garden where one finds the right person for them.  How about not dating the freshman year; instead, get to know people and learn to be a good friend.

7)    If you date, date well.  Have a relationship that honors God and you and the person you’re dating.

8)    Take advantage of having a roommate.  This is really a “love your neighbor” kind-of time.

9)    Leave the past behind.  What once defined them is no longer true in college. The whole life-game changes in college.  What was is no longer.  Let go of past mistakes, failures and hurts.  Accept God’s healing for the future! 

  Belong to a church!  Check out churches online.  Do more than merely show up.  Find a Sunday School class and/or Bible study.  Begin to really learn what’s in the Bible and allow it to shape your living for the rest of your life!

May God abundantly bless you and yours!


Peace like a river,
Rusty Dickerson
