First United Methodist Church - Lakeland, Florida

About Us

First United Methodist Church is a Worship Plus Three (W+3) congregation.  This encompasses the qualities that define the life and ministries of our congregation.  It is helpful to think of W+3 like a three-legged stool.

At First UMC it all starts with a foundation of…

  • WORSHIP is primary and holds our three-legged stool together. 

But we are also to:stool

  • INVITE others into a relationship with God.

  • GROW in our own relationship with God and with our neighbor.

  • SERVE as a continued sign of God’s work in our lives.
