  • We are an open church that welcomes differences and celebrates diversity. Our unity is not in the uniformity of our opinions but rather in the mutuality of our concerns.  We, as our founder John Wesley once said, “Think and let think”. People here may hold very different opinions on a particular issue affecting our church life, but we try to be respectful of each other and we know that WHAT we believe matters to each of us but it is WHO we believe in that holds us together and gives us our strength and reason for living.

Welcome to Hastings First United Methodist Church.  Not only has First UMC been a part of the Hastings community for over 140 years, we are also a part of a rich Wesleyan tradition that has been shaping Christian lives since the early years of our nation’s history.  We seek to example the love and grace of Jesus Christ, to provide ministry that is relevant within a changing culture, all the while being faithful to our Christian heritage. Micah  6:8 expresses: “God has shown you, O Mortal, what is good, and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”  We celebrate the things we share in common and the diversity that makes us who different. 

We serve God together, each person bringing gifts and talents that create unique opportunities for worship and ministry.  We extend to you an invitation to experience Christ in worship, conversation and ministry with us.
