First United Methodist Church of Monticello
“An Old Church with a Young Heart”
Why do we describe ourselves as "An Old Church with a Young Heart?" Although our church has been around a long, long time, serving the Monticello and surrounding communities since 1828, we see ourselves as vibrant, passionate followers of Jesus Christ - ready to take on and serve an ever-changing modern world!
Our members come from every walk of life, young and old, urban and rural. We are a diverse group of people dedicated to not only the study of the Gospel, but also to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through our expressions of faith and works. We have long-time members who grew up in this community and newer members who have just recently moved to our county, but we all share a common purpose - to worship God and serve him through serving others.
We invite you and your family to join us, to worship with us, to get to know us, to get involved in serving our church and the community, and to find your purpose in serving God and your fellow man.
The ministry of First United Methodist Church is to expose Christ to people in the love he gave us so that we can care for each other, share in his word and offer ourselves in mission to the world.
We work hard and strive in order that people will believe the truth, for our hope is in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe. - 1 Timothy 4:10
