Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors. The people of The United Methodist Church.

United Methodist...

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 

Hebrews 10:24

UMW
(United Methodist Women)

United Methodist Women have for a century championed for women, children, and for a more just society for all.  
We have several circles that are part of the UMW at First UMC, listed below, and would love for you to join us.

UMW Mission Sisters 

The UMW Mission Sisters, by combining the Wesley and Wednesday Morning Circles meet the second Thursday of the month from 10 am-12 pm, at the Church. Each meeting includes an interesting program. We participate in all UMW programs and fund raisers. We serve UMM meals twice a year and make health kits for conference and we also participate in Night’s Welcome. We are a close knit group and we always welcome and embrace new members!

Thursday Night Circle

This group, meeting the second Thursday of the month, from 6:30-8 pm, was begun to address women who could not meet in the daytime. Among other projects, this circle is active in many mission projects.

MOPS
(Mothers of Preschoolers)

MOPS meets the needs of all mothers and others, providing a meal, childcare, and a relevant program and real relationships. They meet the 1st Monday of the month from 6:30-8:00 pm and via Zoom the 3rd Monday of the month at 8:00 pm.

UMM
(United Methodist Men)

The United Methodist Men meet on the third Monday of the month, beginning with a meal at 6:00 pm and concluding around 8 pm. Meals are often provided by groups of the church, which receive fundraising help for their efforts.
Programs are currently focused on learning about businesses, military installations, and history in Hampton Roads.

UMYF
(United Methodist Youth Fellowship)

Our youth are important to us! On Sunday evenings, all youth (roughly grades 6-12) gather from 5-6:30 pm for fellowship, games, fun, learning, and support.
This UMYF group is a great place to get started as a young person.
