First United Methodist of WG
First United Methodist Church (FUMC) is located on North Lakeview Avenue, in historic downtown Winter Garden, a stone’s throw from City Hall and the Farmer’s Market. Our church was founded in 1895, and we celebrated our 120th anniversary in March 2015!
Our congregation is deeply embedded in the Winter Garden community. We sponsor Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as hosting many other community organizations on our campus. We also operate a popular preschool, The Learning Center, founded in 1992.
We are committed to Building Life-Changing Christian Relationships. In addition to our two Sunday worship services, our church offers programs to support you during every stage of your faith journey. Connecting on Wednesdays (COW) offers small groups for instruction in the faith for every age and interest; they meet for 90 minutes after supper in Fellowship Hall. Our groups include G3, for children 4-10, and Reel Youth, for middle school and high school students, as well as many options for adults.
Following in the Methodist tradition, our people love to sing, pray, learn more about God and serve others. We invite you to join one of our many teams, including our local and global mission teams.
