At First Church Phoenix, God is building the kind of open, inclusive community of faith needed for the 21st century.

Jesus offers good counsel for all of us on our faith journey. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind and your neighbor as yourself.”

At first United Methodist Church, we strive to help members and attendees deepen their love of God and love of neighbor. Join us for worship, study, service or fellowship to experience this deepening love for yourself.


Baptism

If you would like to be baptized or have your child baptized, please contact the church office at info@firstchurch.church. The baptizing of a person is a sign of God’s saving grace. Pastors administer baptism by sprinkling or pouring water.


Communion

Communion is served the first Sunday of every month. ¬†United Methodists practice “open communion,” that is, all persons are welcome to participate in the meal, regardless of their denomination, church or congregation. During communion, the elements of bread and wine (or grape juice), also referred to as “bread and the cup,” are administered. Just as we understand communion to be a sign of God’s grace, we understand the bread and wine to be symbols of the body and blood of Christ.
