A Safe Place to Explore Your Faith

First United Methodist Church of Lakeland

Welcome Home

The purpose of First United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We strive to accomplish this by being a worship plus three church. This means that we believe worship is of prime importance and 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.
