2014 Church Ministry & Parish Profile

 

First United Methodist Church was founded in 1888 by men and women who were devoted to Christís teachings and dedicated to the education that Nebraska Wesleyan University (NWU) would provide the families of University Place. Actual construction was delayed for a time until December, 1909 when the church building was officially dedicated.

Part of the stunning architecture of First Church are the massive Greek columns both outside and inside the structure, the amphitheater style balcony and the massive stained glass dome with a patriotic design of Abraham Lincoln, purchased by the G.A.R. of University Place.

With Godís grace, First United Methodist Church strives to be a growing, inclusive community of faith working together, sharing Jesusí love, and using our gifts to build and nurture a spiritual community.

First Church is located in North Lincoln at 50th & St. Paul streets, just West of Nebraska Wesleyan University, in the heart of University Place.

There is plenty of free parking available for church services in nearby Nebraska Wesleyan University parking lots or along residential streets. Handicapped parking is available in the small lot just North of the church and hear the East side door with accessible ramps and elevator on North 50th street.
