How can you be the church in these extraordinary times of health-related social distancing? Here at First United Methodist Church of Appleton we invite you to partner with us to find an answer to this question!

Please know that even though most of our staff is working from home these days, you can still call the church office during regular office hours and communicate with all staff via email and phone.

Staff Listing/Contact Info

Much of our ministry is now taking place through online platforms. If you need help to connect or know of someone who does not have internet. Please contact the church office.

Helping Each Other

First Church recognizes that many are in need during this time. In need of prayer, resources, food, etc. and many are in need of volunteering, and doing mission work. How can First Church help fulfill your needs? Please click below on the tab that best describes your situation.

Fellowship Opportunites

We are thrilled to offer time to sit and be with one another. Schedule a time with the office for you and your church friends to have fellowship in our courtyard or come and chat with Pastor Liz during some special dates! We want to make sure everyone remains safe, so we will be capping our fellowship time to 15 people.
