Welcome!

At First United Methodist Church of Battle Creek, we strive to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and his ministry, and to honor the Methodist tradition of social justice. We therefore welcome all of God’s children regardless of race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic status, marital status, political or theological perspective, ability, or other differences that can create barriers between people. We celebrate diversity as it brings us to a closer relationship with God.

  Sunday Service Times

For the month of August the 9:00 am service will be held in the parking lot. That service will be broadcast on 93.3 fm so that you can safely worship from your car.

The governor has issued an executive order to limit the number of people at an indoor gatherings to 10 people. Even though churches are legally exempt from the order The Bishop is asking all United Methodist Churches in Michigan to abide by it.

Pastor Sue, the chair of the Trustees, and the chair of the Church Council met this morning, July 31, via a phone call and decided to cancel the 11 am service for the next two weeks. The Worship Team meets on Aug. 11th and it will be decided then where to go from here.
