Live and Share God's Love

First United Methodist Church - Wausau, Wisconsin

Open... FUMC Logo

Last week, General Conference voted by a narrow margin to support the Traditional Plan. Those of you who know and love LGBTQIA+ family or friends are grieving. Others are pleased that our denomination will no longer compromise on this issue. Either way, as our bishop last week wrote, “We have done harm to one another.” We are uncertain of what lies ahead. While this is often the case in life, know that God loves you. And God is with us through all of this.


You’re invited to join a gathering after church on Sunday, March 10, as we talk about our hopes and fears and what this vote means for First Church.

A Parking Reminder...
Remember that we are allowed to park in the YMCA lots, but not in the “Hair Connection” lot beside us on Third Street. This is especially important to remember now. That building has a new tenant, Grace Reformed Church, whose members will also need to park on Sundays. Let us be good neighbors. 

Oh Susanna! The mother of Methodism is coming here! Enjoy a hour of living history and inspiration. Sunday, May 12, 2019 (Mother’s Day) 10:00 am (Sanctuary Service) Please join us!
