Our worship is central to who we are, and is an expression of the life and spirit of our community of faith. It provides us with an opportunity to express our gratitude for God’s love and grace, share our hopes, joys and struggles, and strengthen our connection to God and one another.

*Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month.

*Infant and toddler care is lovingly provided during both worship services (8:30 & 10:30).

Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome here!

About Us

The United Methodist Church is an 11-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens doors and opens minds through active engagement with our world.

John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

We invite you to learn more about our rich theological heritage.

Turlock’s First United Methodist Church is the first Christian church community established in Turlock, California in 1876. Since the church’s founding we have sought to reach out to all people in our community, in surrounding areas, or wherever needs are recognized.

Membership in the First United Methodist Church is open to anyone who wishes to join in covenant with us as we work to be God’s people in the world. In our membership vows we declare ourselves to be followers of Jesus Christ, and promise to uphold His church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, and our service.
