Join The Journey

“We are travelers on a journey, fellow pilgrims on the road”



Life with God is a wonderful, mysterious, joy-filled journey. When Jesus says, “Follow me,” he is speaking to you, inviting you into an ever-deepening fellowship with Him and other believers.

At FUMC, we gather in small groups of “fellow pilgrims on the road” to grow in our faith. Everyone is welcome.

Dear Friends and Family:

We are launching a visioning project at First United Methodist Church. We need your help and engagement in this process. There are two steps to this project:

  • Discerning our vision of what God is calling us to do.
  • Discerning our mission of how we are going to do what God is calling us to do.

You are essential in this process. A critical part of this is identifying our core values at FUMC. We need you to walk with us during this journey. There is a brief, one-page questionnaire that we are asking everyone to fill out. You may complete it anonymously or, if you wish, you may provide your name. You may complete it electronically or by hand. If you complete it electronically, please send the completed questionnaire to Hardcopies may be mailed or hand-delivered to the church office at 42 Cross Rd.  (click for questionnaire ->Discerning Our Why)

The Council of Church Ministries meetings in September and October will be dedicated solely to the visioning project. Everyone is invited to attend these meetings. These meetings will be held in the lounge on Monday, September 25, 2017 and October 23, 2017. The meetings will start at 6:30 p.m. We will provide food. If you would like to attend and need child care, please call the office to let us know.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 203-554-7860 or email me at
