Welcome…and thank you for logging on to www.fumchartselle.org.


It is our desire that this website serve as an introduction to The First United Methodist Church of Hartselle, Alabama; to her members, her staff, our life together and the ministry we carry forward in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.


At FUMC Hartselle you will find a membership that is loving, open, friendly and committed to growing in their faith. You will discover a host of studies and other activities that touch all ages and stages in life’s journey. From the babies in the nurseries, to the children and the youth, and the young, middle and older adults, this church has programs to help you grow in your faith and find avenues to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ.


At this church you will find a staff that is experienced and committed to help the members carrying forward their vows of membership to support their church with their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service and their witness.


Worship is the vital heart of this church and the door through which most enter into the life of this community of faith. We offer traditional services in the sanctuary at 8:45 am and 11:00 am and a contemporary service at 9:00 am in the gym of our Ministry Center.  The music at each is excellent and the pastors work hard to offer sermons that are engaging and helpful for daily living as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Visit all of these to find the one that best meets your needs.


I am joined by the membership and staff of this church in extending to you a warm and sincere welcome to this church and an invitation to experience all that is The First United Methodist Church of Hartselle.


A Letter From Our Pastor


The United Methodist Church is a worldwide church of twelve million people descended from the ministry of Rev. John Wesley (1709-1792). Our church is warm-hearted and life centered. We believe in adherence to the basics of faith without strict doctrinal requirements. We have many distinctive contributions to Christianity including disciple-making small groups and the emphasis on both experience and belief.
