We invite you to worship with us on Sunday mornings and want to personally welcome you to First United Methodist Church in Colorado Springs, where our church has a long and rich history of effective ministry.
Be sure to stop by the Welcome Desk on Sunday morning so we can meet you, give you a special gift and answer any questions you might have. Or, look for one of our Andrew Ministers in red jackets who can also answer your questions and help you find your way around.
First United Methodist Church is located downtown at 420 North Nevada Avenue. For weekday business, the main entrance is on the north side of the building facing St. Vrain Street. This is also a primary entrance on Sunday’s as well as the front doors facing Nevada Avenue. The Nevada doors are only open for worship services and special events. Use the map link and directions for reference on getting to the church. If you need further assistance, please call the church office at 719.471.8522.
If You Have Children K-6th
On Sunday mornings at both 9:30 and 11:00 am, parents sign-in children K-6th grades at the Welcome Table in the back of the sanctuary. Children then gather in the pews marked with Claude the Camel banners. Following the Children's Message, children all proceed to Kingdom City (second floor north). Pick-up for Sunday School and Children's Worship is in Kingdom City (Children Area on the second floor).
Stop in for a tour of Kingdom City so you can get a glimpse of how the children are cared for and educated through this wonderful, Biblically-based adventure.
If You Have Infant - Preschool Age Children (Birth - 5)
When bringing your children to the Nursery, please sign-in at the age appropriate classroom in the Nursery Hallway
Nursery (Room 215) is for infants through 24 months and is available throughout Sunday morning from 8:00 am to noon. We believe that babies should be introduced to the love God through Bible Stories, music and blessings each week. Our staff is trained and ready to help your infant's first experience of church be a positive one!
Preschool (Rooms 211 and 214) is for children ages 2-5 years old. There are two classes on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00 am. The children will experience God's love through Bible Story Time, reinforced by a game or activity, and through our Sacred Circle Time, a unique prayer time designed especially for preschoolers, to grow in their relationship with God!
Our staff is CPR trained, have received background checks and are trained in infant and preschool spirituality.
