Sunday mornings


our mission

Our mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.

our ministries

We offer ministries for all ages and serve the community through a variety of outreach programs.

I'm new

At First UMC, our desire is for you to experience the peace, love, and hope that are found in Jesus. 


Our worship service is "traditional" in style, with organ and piano music, liturgy, and sermons that connect the Bible to everyday life. You'll see multiple generations, dressed from blue jean casual to shirt & slacks. You will be greeted by friendly ushers ready to help. 


We look forward to welcoming you to worship!

outreach ministries

We love our community of Dayton and south Liberty County! Examples of our outreach ministries include our food pantry that distributes twice each month, "Friends In Deed" ministry to serve under-resourced students, Society of St. Stephen's clothing ministry, "MOPS" (Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers) fellowship for moms, annual Educator's Luncheon to honor Dayton ISD employees, and partnering with the "Reading Buddies" program to serve Dayton ISD elementary students. 


Our love for Jesus leads us to serve our neighbors in His name!
