Join us as we celebrate our 150 years in ministry to the Worthington area and the world.
In 1872, a group of persons living in the young community of Worthington formed a community church and stayed together for about a year.
In 1873, the group decided to branch off into their own respective denominations. The Methodist group officially formed on Wednesday, May 21st, 1873.
First UMC will be celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the church on Sunday, May 21st, 2023!
Our new Bishop Lanette Plambeck will be joining us, as will former pastors and members of the congregation from year’s past.
Think back on your special FUMC memories and prepare to share them with us all!
Our celebration will take place all morning that day and culminating with a catered meal at noon.
Please keep this special Sunday open as we commemorate our 150 years in ministry to the Worthington area and the world.
At First UMC, we love working with others. We enjoy each other's company,
especially when we are learning more about how to strengthen our relationship with God and Jesus.
