Welcome

Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Oklahoma City.  We want you to know that everything we do at First Church we have you in mind.  We all know what it's like to be new to a church, even at First Church, so we want to do all we can to help you feel comfortable, challenge you to grow in your faith, and to help us make a difference in our Oklahoma City neighborhood.

Being part of the fabric of downtown means we are creating a culture in which young families can raise their children, retirees can relax and enjoy the urban environment, and young adults can take in the excitement and vibrancy of the urban lifestyle.

We know being in the heart of Oklahoma City comes with a great responsibility.  We take seriously our responsibility to create a sense of community with all our downtown neighbors, no matter your economic or social status.  We want to help create a culture of care, respect, and justice in our neighborhood.  

As you browse our website get to know us, our staff, our passions, and our values.  Once again, welcome to our community of faith at First Church!

Worship

When you first arrive at First Church Guest Parking is available in the "upper" parking lot on the northeast corner of our facility off of 5th Street.  The main entrance to the church is on the northeast corner of the church under the large portico.


Greeters will welcome you at the front doors with a warm smile and a friendly handshake. If needed you will be shown to our professionally staffed Nursery and to our Worship Center.


When you arrive in our Worship Center be prepared to be greeted by new friends who desire to make you feel loved by God. You will be welcomed in any manner of dress as you join us in experiencing a loving, accepting, and forgiving God.  Our worship service is a beautiful blend of the modern and the traditional.  Our worship services are designed with you, the guest, in mind with practical, easy-to-understand messages.  No matter if you've never been to church or raised in church you will feel comfortable.
