We strongly believe that people are important to God and therefore are important to the church.  Our core values are to show that same love, care, and kindness, friendliness, and patience that He does.  Our desire is to help build families and relationships that are God - centered and God - influenced.

From Sunday morning worship and Sunday school to Bible studies, Gothenburg First United Methodist Church is focused on helping you to experience how God's love and grace can change your life.

"Where faith and friends are found"

Unfortunately, there has been a sharp up-tick in COVID-19 cases here in Gothenburg over the last week/weekend. The Leadership Board of our church will be meeting tonight         (7-28-2020), via Zoom, to discuss changes to our worship service. We are hopeful that we will be able to come up with a solution that everyone is comfortable with and hopefully we will be able to stay with in-person worship [🤞] [🙏] . Please check our Facebook page, or this website tomorrow for an update and for those members who do not have internet, we will also be utilizing, emails,texting, or calls. Stay safe and healthy [❤️]
