Updates Regarding Covid-19

Update June 1, 2020


In support of efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, some in-person gatherings on campus at First United Methodist Church (FUMC) Hartselle have resumed.


The church building is closed to public use. The church office is open Monday - Thursday, 9-12 a.m. Until further notice Staff are working remotely at other times.


We will have in-person worship inside FUMC as follows in June.



8:45a – Crossties Contemporary in Ministry Center Gym

10:30a – Traditional in Sanctuary

6:00p – reFRESH Contemporary in Ministry Center Gym



6:30 Celebrate Recovery in Ministry Center Gym We will live stream this worship experience on Facebook for those who want to continue to worship on-line. https://www.facebook.com/fumchartselle/


If you need pastoral help while time the office is closed, please leave a voice message on the church answering machine at 256-773-6952. Someone will check it daily.

Those in a Sunday school classes or small groups can check-in with each other via phone, text, email, or social media. Where feasible, many groups may meet virtually via web or phone conference.


Be assured that we can still worship the Lord as His church even when we can’t gather at 210 Hickory Street. The church of Jesus Christ is not a building anyway. Let’s be patient and remember those who are at the greatest risk. It will require some adjustments for many, but we want to do all we can to not spread this terrible disease. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea...” (Psalm 46:1-2).
