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.

  • Gift of Prayer for Our Church

    Praying for our Church

    Our prayer ministry is entering its 2nd year with the same goal, to cover First Church in prayer. Each day in 2019 we want a member of our congregation praying for our pastors and staff. We need you, yes, all of you, to sign up to pray for our church. Each month we will offer some suggestions for prayer.

    “Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference." Max Lucado
