Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Appleton! We are a congregation deeply committed to the great task that Jesus put on his church’s heart: to make disciples and transform this world.

At First Church you can expect to find a successful model of an intergenerational church: We have a wonderful children’s ministry, a great junior and senior high youth program, an array of adult programs reaching from small group ministries to annual mission trips and an outstanding music ministry program for kids, youth and adults.

We’d love to welcome you among us. Know that you can come as you are so we can grow together and make a difference in God’s great world.

  • Gift of Prayer for Our Church

    Special Gift for our Church

    For 2018 how about giving a special gift to your pastors, church staff and the ministry teams?  The gift is free. 

    It is prayer.  It is easy and something you can do anywhere.  For 2018 SPRC is coordinating a new prayer ministry, covering Appleton First in prayer.  Will you agree to pray for the church one day in 2018?  The goal is to have members of our congregation praying for our pastors and staff every day in 2018.  We need you, yes, all of you, to sign up to pray for our church. 

    Sign up by using this link Click Here 

    As we get closer to 2018 we will offer some suggestions for prayer.
