***The Ministry Council of First church has voted to go virtual worship for the last Sunday of November (29) and the first Sunday of December (8).***

FUMC - WORSHIP will be virtual on November 29 and December 8. The service will still be held at 9:30 and will be offered on Facebook Live, ZOOM, and Youtube.

As covid-19 continues to gain strength we will reevaluate our worship situation. The possibility exists to extend the virtual services throughout December and including Christmas Eve if necessary as conditions remain in a critical stage or worsen. 

Please check this page for updates going forward.

Thanks for your understanding and patience. 


The worship service will be offered online:

  1. Facebook Live (AT 9:30 AM each Sunday) on First United Methodist Church of Lewistown page  

  2. ZOOM connection available.

   3. YouTube.com channel :  (FUMC Hospitality).    (usually available Sunday evening.)

   4. Wednesday evening Bible Study at 7 PM on FUMC Facebook Live.

   5. Hymn sing with Katie Becker and Tiff Goss on Thursday evening at 7:15 PM FUMC Facebook.
