First UMC Gadsden Serves at CommUnity Thanksgiving!


God is doing a new thing at First United Methodist Church of Gadsden, and we invite you to be a part of it!  I arrived here at the end of June and found a devoted congregation which has been in the heart of the city since the mid 1800’s. The congregation is a welcoming place, reflecting the diversity of the Body of Christ and offering opportunities for all ages to grow in discipleship.

You will find opportunities for worship (5:30 pm on Thursday, 9:00 am on Sunday, and 11:00 am on Sunday), learning, mission, and fellowship. You also will find spaces to serve the larger community and develop a deeper relationship with others and Jesus.  

In my short time here, I have come to appreciate that First United Methodist of Gadsden is a congregation rooted in its tradition, but ever reaching for the future with Jesus.

Rev. Sherri Reynolds
