We are so glad you decided to join us for worship today!

Welcome to Worship at Pell City First United Methodist Church! Our worship is focused on praising God, deepening our faith, and strengthening our community of Christ followers as we reach out with God’s grace and love to the community around us. Whether you are joining us in the Sanctuary or The Beacon, we hope that you will find a warm welcome and a meaningful worship experience.

Below you will find more information to help answer any questions you might have as well as ways to connect.

Restrooms: If you are in The Sanctuary (Traditional Worship), restrooms can be founded by going out of either of the doors in the front of the Sanctuary.  Turn left down the hallway and they will be towards the end on the right.  


If you are in The Beacon (Wide Open Worship), go out the doors to the left.  This will bring you to the lobby.  Turn right into the hallway towards our Children's Center.  They will be immediately on your left.  


Nursery and Children's Church:  During worship, all children are invited to attend and participate in the various worship services with their parents. However we understand that sometime kids just have a hard time sitting through "big church."  After the first part of our 10:30 worship services there will be a dismissal for any children between the ages of 3 and 3rd grade for children's church which is in the Garner Room in The Beacon. During this time they will sing some songs, play some games, make a craft, and have an age appropriate lesson.  Children can be picked up after the service in the Garner Room, in The Beacon. If you enter The Beacon from the 22nd Street side, the Garner Room is to the right next to the kitchen.


On Sunday mornings there is also a nursery, available from 9:00am-12:00pm for children ages 6 weeks through 2 years old. This can be found in the daycare hall of the Beacon, there will be signs to point you in the right direction.


We are a Safe Sanctuaries Church and take safety of our children and volunteers seriously. All volunteers are required to undergo a thorough federal and state background check repeated every three years and attend annual Safe Sanctuaries training and refreshers

The Lord is faithful even in difficult times. We give, in part, because of the extravagant gifts we have received from the Lord, from whom all blessings flow. There is something that changes in us when we give thanks to God. Thank you for your generous giving to transform lives and communities with the help of God!
