Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Appleton! We are a congregation deeply committed to the great task that Jesus put on his church’s heart: to make disciples and transform this world.

At First Church you can expect to find a successful model of an intergenerational church: We have a wonderful children’s ministry, a great junior and senior high youth program, an array of adult programs reaching from small group ministries to annual mission trips and an outstanding music ministry program for kids, youth and adults.

We’d love to welcome you among us. Know that you can come as you are so we can grow together and make a difference in God’s great world.

    Christmas Eve, our schedule remains the same as last year

    4 p.m. – A family service featuring our multi-generational
    Christmas Orchestra beginning at 3:40 (nursery will be staffed)

    7 p.m. – Traditional service featuring
    Sanctuary Choir and Wesley Handbell Choir

    10 p.m. – Candlelight service with Communion featuring
    special harp music

    All three Christmas Eve services will feature a candle-lit Silent Night.

    As for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, both fall on Sundays this year. After prayerful consideration, we felt it is best to combine our two Sunday services and offer one combined 10 a.m. worship service on each of these days:

    Christmas Day – 10 a.m. combined worship (nursery will be staffed)

    New Year’s Eve – 5:30 p.m. communion

    New Year’s Day – 10 a.m. combined worship – communion (nursery will be staffed)
