We believe that each of us were made to be in relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It is also our belief that God calls all Christians to grow in their faith. It is our hope that every adult will choose to grow by becoming part of our small group ministry and by serving in mission in some way. Small group ministry helps develop lasting relationships and foster faith growth. Service through missions fosters our call as Christians to love our neighbor. We believe every adult should be engaged in these ministries because they are quintessential to our faith.

United Methodist Women

Internationally members raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.

United Methodist Men
UMM's mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.

Its goal is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregations of the UMC.

Our pathway is a lifelong commitment to spiritual growth to maturity as Christ's followers. Our spiritual formation is marked by spiritual reproduction, as our faith passes on in others.

Dustin Beene is the 2013 President of UMM at First Church.
