FUMC Welcomes our new Pastors: Bill & Melissa Gepford 

Hi Fremont First UMC! We are so excited to be here and to do life with you. We will arrive in Fremont at the very end of June and look forward to meeting each of you and hearing about your hopes and dreams for the future of the Church.  We would love to have your prayers during this transition - that God would prepare us and use us to be the best pastors we possibly can be for your Church family.  


Bill is from the Kansas City area, and Melissa is from East Texas. We met in seminary at Perkins School of Theology at SMU in Dallas. A week after we graduated, we got married, and two weeks after that, we began ministry in the Great Plains Annual Conference. We were fortunate to serve two years in Colby, KS, and another two in Tonganoxie, KS. This Kansas boy and Texas girl are eager to learn about Nebraska!


Bill is passionate about preaching and leadership development; Melissa loves creating discipleship ministries and equipping and releasing the church to do what it does best - change the world! She is also a contract researcher and writer for publishing houses. Bill and Melissa love dancing, coffee, and CrossFit (except when they make us run!).


Our hopes for Fremont First UMC are pretty simple:  we want to uncover and unleash the natural vision of the Church, to join with you in creating systems so that each of us are  growing in faith and discipleship, and to grow as a Church that serves as a beacon of hope and love to the community.


We look forward to meeting you in the next few weeks!

In Christ’s Love,

Bill & Melissa Gepford

We have changed our worship times!  Our traditional Service will start 9 am.  Our Contemporary Service will start at 11 am.  We will now offer a Christian Education and Fellowship Hour between services that will feature bible lessons for all age groups (similar to Sunday School - which will resume in the fall after school starts again).  We are excited for this change, and pray it will help families to worship together.
