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.

  • Biblical Village

    Come one, come all! To the First United Methodist Church Biblical Village, on Sunday March 18th, between 10 and 11am. Bring your children, grandchildren, friend, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, mother, father even your neighbor!

    You will travel back in time to the days that Jesus walked the earth. Take a tour of a home then take a moment to worship in the synagogue.  Watch men work in their carpentry/wood working shop then walk next door to chat with the potter. Watch out for kids playing ball and other games in the streets while wandering around the well. Sample some yummy foods and take some home with a donation. There will be many activities for children during the Biblical Village.

    Sunday School starts at 9:00am on March 18th. Children can be dropped off in their classrooms and picked up in their classrooms after the service is over.

  • 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.  SPRC is coordinating a new prayer ministry, covering First Church in prayer.  Will you agree to pray for the church for one day?  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 


    Each month we will offer some suggestions for prayer.
