We are one church with two locations! Worship, education, and fellowship usually occurs at our downtown campus, located at 308 N.

We hope you will join us for any of our upcoming worship services or activities.  Please join us for worship and Sunday school, each Sunday at 8:30 and 11:00am. at FUMC downtown (308 N.

Our Mission

"The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."
(Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church)...

Regular Weekend Worship
Sundays at 8:30 and 11:00am
Children's Church at 8:30 and 11:00am 
Sunday School Classes are at 9:45am
A nursery is provided.

In terms of our planning, some of our events will be “member-guest”.  These events are designed to connect members of our church with people who are not church members.  Therefore, in order to participate, you must bring a friend with you (a non FUMC member).  Events where this does not apply will be designated as “Open”. 

Faith Lessons from Antietam (Member-Guest)

Join us for a "mini spiritual retreat" led by Reverend White. We will meet in the Fellowship Hall at 7p.m. on Friday for a briefing/devotion. Leaving at 8a.m. Saturday, we'll travel to Sharpsburg, MD where we will tour the Antietam Civil War Battlefield. Reverend White will provide both an historical tour AND biblical devotions, with application for YOUR life today. We will return Saturday evening around dinner time. (i.e. 5-8ish)

Small Groups

Walking Group Challenge!  (Open)

Tuesday and Thursday Evenings, beginning July 11th, 6:30pm, at Handley High School Parking Lot

If you started this summer, could you walk from Nazareth to Galilee by Christmas time?  The distance is 80 miles.   That means you’ll need to walk 13.5 miles each month for the next sixth months!   That’s a very “doable thing”, so please join us.  Bring a friend! 

Movie Night at the Church’s Apple Pie Ridge Campus (Open)

Friday, August 25, 7:15pm, “Second Hand Lions”

The evening begins with a hot dog roast.  Hot dogs, buns, and condiments will be provided by the church.  Water, coke, and diet coke, will be provided too! Please bring a side dish to share, such as a vegetable, salad, or dessert.  After supper, we’ll watch the movie (PG), in which Robert Duvall and Michael Caine play eccentric uncles, passing along the secret details of their adventurous lives to their nephew.   Bring a non-FUMC friend!
