Welcome to the website of the Decatur First United Methodist Church. Our purpose is to disciple one another to cultivate a legacy of Gospel-inspired servant leadership. Jesus said “I am among you as one who serves” (Luke 22:27). From our founding in 1834, the prominent fruit of First Church has been the servant leaders who have made a positive impact on this church, this city, and the world. This website has been designed to introduce you to some of the ways we seek to live this purpose .
