First Church returns to virtual worship only beginning November 8


First UMC is suspending in-person worship because of Corona infection in Polk County.  You can join worship at 10:30 AM Sundays on our Face Book page and our You Tube channel.  

The FUMC Re-entry Task Group will determine whether it will be possible to resume in-person worship in January.  Watch the website, Cross Notes, and your mail for information about when we will resume in-person worship.

In the meantime, remember to join our live streamed worship at 10:30 AM each Sunday on Face Book or our You Tube channel.

Important Announcements from Pastor Solis:

Be sure to join us on Sundays at 10:30 AM for live stream worship service!

Making disciples of Jesus Christ

for the transformation of the world.

Des Moines First United Methodist Church strives to love others as Christ loves us and, in doing so, to be the Body of Christ in word and deed. As the Body of Christ, we welcome all of God’s children, knowing that each is created in the image of God. We welcome people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, races, ethnicities, family configurations, and physical and mental capabilities to join us in full participation as we come together to worship God and then go out to share God’s love in the world around us.
