About us

You may know us as the red brick building in Downtown Great Bend, where we have a long, proud history of serving our community. But more than a building, it's our congregation, staff members, and volunteers that share the spark of the divine - working to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world. We invite all ages and backgrounds to join us as we GROW in faith, SHARE in worship, and SERVE others. We can’t wait to welcome you. We are here to spread His message of hope and light. We hope you'll visit and share in the life, fellowship, and community of First UMC.
