This Week's Live Stream

Welcome to First UMC Jackson!

We are a United Methodist congregation comprised of people from all walks of life. We recognize that all are seekers and all are at different stages in their spiritual journeys. We welcome all individuals and, as a congregation, seek to be a reflection of Christ's love. We invite you to join us, as together we strive to know God and be known by God as He reveals Himself in new and exciting ways.

July Worship Schedule

July 21, 2019

Text:  Ephesians 3:14-21

Sermon Title:  “We Need a Bigger Boat!”

Synopsis:  God has enlisted the church to help save the world.  And God has placed Jackson First at the heart of our city’s “renaissance.”  Until every person in Jackson has been introduced to Jesus, our church isn’t big enough.

Worship Assistant:  Melinda Long


July 28, 2019—Summer Sermon Series:  The Amazing Power of HOPE

Text:  Jeremiah 21:11-14

Sermon Title:  “Ring the Bell of HOPE!”

Synopsis:  Hope is energetic:  it energizes our mission and infuses us with energy. Hope is magnetic:  it draws others into its circle of influence.  And hope is heroic, willing to take risks.  Nothing looks impossible to the eyes of hope.  When God comes, the impossible becomes possible.

Worship Assistant:  Terri Reynolds
