First United Methodist Church - Lakeland, Florida

About Us


Worship plus Three (W+3) is how we define the ministries of First United Methodist. This means that we believe worship is of prime importance and is our foundation. In addition, we are to invite others into a relationship with God, grow in our own relationship with God and our neighbor, and serve others as a continued sign of God’s work in our lives. For illustration purposes, it may be helpful to think of a three-legged stool. On our stool, worship is the top and necessary to hold it together. Inviting, growing, and serving – much like the legs of the stool – are equally important components.
