A mission-driven church
We are a vibrant multi-cultural community with a long history of service to vulnerable populations, not only in Utah, but around the world. We feed our friends on the streets and provide temporary housing for homeless families in our building, and reach out to support those in need in places like Pakistan and Guatemala.
If you are interested in participating in our ministries,

FUMC is one of the original founding churches of Family Promise – Salt Lake. Family Promise supports families experiencing homelessness on their path back to stable housing with safe, private lodging in area churches, meals, case management, and hospitality. Two churches in the Salt Lake area have volunteered space in their buildings to house families in Emergency Shelter. Volunteers can partner with FUMC to participate onsite at the shelter churches in the evening, stay overnight, or provide an evening meal. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for a shift anytime during the year and/or join us for our specific hosting weeks. Hosting weeks for First United Methodist Church in 2023 are: March 12-19, June 4-18, September 21-Oct 1, December 3-17. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering.

FUMC was one of the founders of the center established in 1966 and we are active participants. In addition to ongoing support of food and clothing, we participate in the July Golden Celery Food Drive that stocks the pantry with needed food for the summer months.
We have assisted in building three of the four medical clinics run by Salud y Paz in Guatemala and host mission trips to provide desperately needed medical and dental care to the people in small villages. Our next Vision Journey is February 25 through March 6, 2023. All are welcome to support this mission with their prayers of support along with gifts of needed medical supplies that we will collect in the month of January & February 2023.
The vision of the Music Ministry at FUMC is to Praise God. Through music, we reach out to our diverse community in celebration, praise and worship of God’s grace and goodness. The Music Ministry Team selects music for worship, cultivates skills in choral singing for the Chancel Choir, provides musical opportunities for self-expression, and gives positive spiritual and social support to its members.
The Chancel Choir provides the music for the 11:15am Sunday worship service
