Our Ministries

Kids Ministry

“Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” Mark 10:14

Children and their families are an active, vital part of our church community. We seek to support families in the spiritual development of children by providing opportunities for worship, faith formation, fellowship, and service together. We are excited to partner with you to help your children become deeply committed Christians.


““Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14

Our youth ministry is mission-minded and family oriented. We seek to teach and model for our youth how to follow Jesus, love others just as they are, and serve God every day of their lives.


Our college ministry is a place to laugh with friends, eat good food, dive into the Bible, pray for God to do big things and grow in your relationship with Christ.


On Wednesday nights during the fall and spring we offer midweek opportunities for fellowship and discipleship. Dinner is served from 5:00-6:00 PM with Bible study following from 6:00-7:00 PM

We also have numerous adult Sunday School classes for a variety of life stages, faith journeys, and teaching models. All of our Sunday School classes meet at 9:45 AM.


First United Methodist Church is truly blessed to have many people with a variety of talents and gifts who lead our congregation in worship by creating inspiring music to the glory of God. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate in our various music ministries.


The people of First United Methodist are devoted to putting faith into action by sharing and embodying the love of Christ to our neighbors in Opelika and around the world. We hope you’ll find a place to serve on mission with us.
