Welcome To Our Church!

Moscow First United Methodist Church is a wonderful church community. It is known for the sound of choirs and congregants raising their voices in praise to God, with bells ringing and the historic clock chiming in the hours. During the pandemic, we moved our ministries online so we could stay connected with folks near and far. Now we are able to worship once again in our sanctuary and continue online through live streaming for those who are still uncertain. Wherever you are, we hope you know God loves you and cares about your life.

  • Denominational History


    The United Methodist Church traces its roots back to the life and ministry of John and Charles Wesley, Anglican priests in 18th century England. Though neither left the Anglican Church, they began a movement to reform that church which eventually became its own denomination and spread to the United States where it split from the Anglican Church in their lifetime.

  • Pastoral Change

    Our church will be going through a pastoral change this summer (2022), as pastor Kim Poole will be transitioning to Alaska and pastor Rev. McGuckin transitions to Moscow FUMC.

  • Guidelines For Faith There are many things which guide our faith.  As United Methodists we look in particular at four things to help us understand God and grow in our relationship with God. 
    Scripture:  is the primary source of our faith.  The 66 books of the Old and New Testament contain all that is necessary for salvation.  We believe that Scripture is best interpreted in the believing community.
    Tradition:  the wisdom of those who have gone before us, though not 100% true for our day, is another useful guide in our faith.
    Experience:  our individual experiences of God ‘s grace and the cumulative experiences of our lives which give each person a unique and valued insight into faith.
    Reason:  God gave us minds and expects us to use them and to think through not only what the Bible tells us in light of the world in which we live but also how to live out that faith.  Read more...

  • Worship Gathering together with other Christians to pray, sing, and praise God is an important expression of our faith and avenue for growth.  At Moscow First United Methodist Church worship is both casual and informal, traditional and contemporary, reflective and passionate.  You will find people here in suits and dresses, and in t-shirts and jeans.  You will hear classical, gospel, jazz, and light rock music.  You will hear our pipe organ, the piano, and banjo and guitar.
