Welcome to First United Methodist Church in Taylorsville. Our desire is to be a church partnering with God in planting believers and making disciples. We are glad you are checking us out! Please consider coming to worship with us anytime. EVERYONE is welcome – we truly have Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.
When you come to worship, our hope is that you will feel comfortable and relaxed. We pray that you will be touched in some way by our service. Our goal during our services is to worship God and enjoy fellowship together. Our early service starts at 8:33 am and is more contemporary with music provided by our very talented band, One Acchord. Our later service starts at 11:00 am and is held in the sanctuary. This service is structured in a more traditional manner with a gifted Chancel Choir which sings a wide variety of music as well as traditional hymns, creeds and liturgy. Casual dress is completely appropriate at either service.
After the early service, we offer coffee and juice and light refreshments in the Narthex. This provides a chance for fellowship following worship and prior to Sunday School. Sunday School begins at 9:45 am and we offer classes for all ages. The nursery off of the fellowship hall and is for newborns up to age 4. An usher or any church member would be happy to assist you in finding the nursery or a Sunday School classroom.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the church office at 828-632-2993. We will be glad to help you in any way that we possibly can.
Our congregation prides itself on being very open-minded and welcoming. We offer many opportunities for spiritual growth, biblical and theological learning, local and international missions, fellowship, social gatherings and small groups. We are very active in the community and in particular with the Alexander Correctional Institution and Taylorsville Elementary School. The connectional nature of the United Methodist Church allows us to be networked with other UM churches throughout our own Western North Carolina Conference as well as throughout the world. This connectional system allows for accountability in the tradition of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. We are bound together by a common mission and common governance that accomplishes the larger church goal of reaching out into the world for Christ.
