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.
