A Church for the Community

The founder of United Methodist, John Wesley, famously said " we need not think alike to love alike."  That describes our First UMC family of faith well.  We are united in our differences and joined together by a love for Christ, the Manhattan Community and one another. Our mission is to connect to Christ, grow in community and serve the world. This calls us to create dynamic worship experiences, provide space for Christian community and work towards justice with our mission and outreach efforts.
