Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Iowa City. We are a community where everyone is welcome. It is our hope that through our worship and ministries you will be connected with God and with new friends in faith. It is our commitment to assist you in growing in your faith relationship with God so that you may join us in making a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. Come join us for worship and find a home for your Spirit. All are welcome to participate as they are, in all activities, without exception.


Rev. Dr. Barrie M. Tritle, Lead Pastor

First UMC is committed to living the

Christian values of love, faith, and grace. 

As Jesus taught,

we commit ourselves

to being welcoming of all. 

Our church is open for all,

no exceptions.

Join us for Worship, Sundays at 8:00am, 9:15am, and 10:30am.

All of our worship services at FUMC feature sermons that connect the Bible to the daily living of our faith. We seek to live John Wesley’s understanding of grace in our relationships with God, one another, and the world.
