Hello and Welcome to our church's website!   We are glad that you have taken a few moments to look around and discover our church family.  FUMC is committed to following Jesus Christ and making disciples for the transformation of the world.

We have three key areas of focus for making disciples.  One, we want to reach nominal Christians and lost people with the good news of Jesus Christ.  Two, we want to take Christians deeper in their commitment to Christ through Bible study, prayer, worship, fellowship and service.  Three, as followers of Christ, we want to relieve suffering through local and global missions.  We believe every member is called to grow and serve.

Enjoy the website, and we would love to meet you face to face on Sunday morning:  SUNDAY SCHOOL @9:00 and WORSHIP @10:15
