Welcome! Welcome!

First United Methodist Church embraces Jesus’ message that God loves everyone and we affirm that all persons are of sacred worth. We are a community where you can explore your questions of faith, engage in a welcoming, friendly congregation, and be a part of ministries that reveal the true nature of Jesus.

We are proud to celebrate diversity. We welcome people of every age, race, gender identity and orientation; nationality and ethnicity. We welcome any family structure, economic reality, physical and mental ability, education and faith history.

  • If you are looking for a church that will accept you as you are, then come on in.
  • If you want to discover God’s calling for your life and deepen your faith in Christ, then visit us.
  • If you wish to connect with friendly, welcoming people, then give us a try.

First Church celebrates with Open Minds, Open Hearts and Open Doors. We’re pleased you’re here.

The First United Methodist Church of South Bend is a Reconciling Church and we Worship together as a community of believers.
