When Jesus was asked what commandment was the most important he answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is the, you will love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:30-31). That is what First UMC (FUMC) is all about. We take seriously that commandment as well as the Great Commission to “Go therefore and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19).
FirstUMC is a wonderful community with many opportunities for worship, discipleship, and service in the name of Jesus Christ. We hope you feel welcome in our midst and we’d love to join you as we all work to grow in our relationship with God, and serve the Great Bend mission field in whatever ways God calls.
