First United Methodist Church

The Coronavirus crisis has disrupted life as we knew it. After receiving a message from Bishop David Graves and reviewing information from the CDC, WHO, and the Alabama Department of Public Health, we have decided to cancel worship services and other church meetings and events through March 29.

A video sermon will be posted by 8 a.m. each Sunday morning and also a weekly prayer service at 5 p.m. on Wednesdays for you to participate in via Facebook.

Call Britt Martin at (678) 953-4602 and he will have an army of youth and parents standing by to assist you and pray for you.

We will reevaluate this decision on March 30 and decide if additional measures are needed. On April 4, we will gather for a congregational workday to clean and disinfect the church as we prepare for Palm Sunday. We want you all to join us.

Please let us know if we can help you in any way by calling the church office at 687-8227.
