Current Response @ First German UMC

  1. At this time we have postponed all public worship at the Church. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has thrust our community into unknown territory, with the information consistently changing. At this time, due to the Stay at Home order issued statewide, we are unsure when we will be returning to regular public worship. In the meantime, we look forward to engaging with everyone through the usage of technology and will be sending out regular updates as the situation changes.
  1. The First German United Methodist Church Heritage School will be closed the week of Monday, March 16 – Friday, March 20. More information about the following week will come.
  1. In order to maintain connection and community in this time we are requesting volunteers to be part of a telephone tree. If interested please email Pastor Kurt.
  1. We have started an online bible study on Wednesdays at 6:30 P.M. If you wish to join us, please sign up here to receive emails with further information.
