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.

  • Habitat Build

    On June 11 the excavation crew of Habitat for Humanity started digging the basement for the house we are building which is part of our Capital Campaign’s mission project. Below you can find the complete volunteer schedule that we as First Church are honored to fill.

    You can register by going to the following web page: https://foxcitieshabitat.volunteerhub.com/lp/firstumcappleton/

    Before you can sign up you have to create an account with Habitat. It  will take about 2 minutes.

    Please consider the following helpful pieces of information:

    - In most cases volunteer positions are for an entire day.

    - Check with your employer, you might be eligible to take paid leave for a day.

    - If you are able to work during the week, please leave the Saturday dates for those who are not able to help during the week.

    - You have to be at least 14 years of age to sign up, there are work restrictions for people under the age of 18.

    - You have to register at least two weeks prior to the date you want to volunteer, otherwise our Habitat coordinator will fill vacant positions.

    - Sign up can happen throughout the summer and fall until all positions are filled but keep the 2 week deadline in mind.

    For any more questions, do not hesitate to talk to a person at the Habitat sign up table after/before the church service or call the church office.

  • Gift of Prayer for Our Church

    Special Gift for our Church

    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.
