Sunday Worship.   First Church offers the best of traditional worship for contemporary Christians.  Large print bulletins and handicapped seating are available. Children of all ages are certainly welcome, though we do provide guided childcare

Holy Communion, also known as the Lord's Supper,  is served the first Sunday of each month.  In the United Methodist Church, you do not need to be a member to participate in this sacrament --- Holy Communion is open to all.  At First Church, we serve by "intinction" -- the pastor will give you a piece of bread,  you will then dip it into grape juice in the chalice.  Afterwards, you may wish to kneel at the prayer rail or return to your seat.  Those preferring Communion where seated will be served by a pastor.  If you do not wish to participate, simply remain seated.   Provisions are always made for those who are gluten intolerant.

Through Baptism, we accept God's gifts through Jesus. There are three methods used for baptism by United Methodists, although sprinkling water on the head of the person being baptized is most common.   Please contact our pastors if you would like more information about baptism at First United Methodist.



Yes, it is certainly possible to hold your wedding service at First United Methodist -- both members and non-members.

We do think that it is important for the couple to be connected to a church family.  If you are not, our senior pastor, Pastor Greg Godwin, will meet with you prior to your wedding service, and will invite you to become a part of our fellowship.  

Call us at 304-623-3397, or e-mail Don Gardner, Director of Operations, at for information, application, and fees.

(Contact us at least 6 months prior to your wedding.)
