First United Methodist Church, Forest City gathers weekly for a progressive-minded and inclusive traditional worship service.
Welcoming All: The mission statement of FUMC-Forest City reflects our desire to create a warm and welcoming environment. We exist to love people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus, equip them with a faith in God that works in real life and empower them to impact the world.
Message: The worship service is crafted in a way that the music and the word work in harmony. Our minister reflects on the Bible and Culture from a progressive United Methodist viewpoint.
Music: Hymns are accompanied by a full choir and one of the largest pipe organs in the region. The music ministry adds to the worship experience and must be experienced in person!
What to Wear: We welcome all people and encourage everyone to join in. Wear whatever you wear in your every day life: jeans to sport coats, t-shirts to top fashion, shorts to pleated khakis - all are fine. Yes, even socks with sandals.
