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.

    Praying for our Church

    Our prayer ministry is entering its 3rd year with the same goal, to cover First Church in prayer. Each day in 2020 we want a member of our congregation praying for our pastors, staff, ministries, and members. We invite you to sign up to pray for our church.

    “Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference." Max Lucado
