Church History

 November of 1921 the corner stone for our current church was laid.  While it was being built, Stockfield Temple, the W.T.C.U. meeting hall at Military and Park (at present an apartment house) was used for services.  The church was completed in 1922 and was dedicated by Bishop Stuntz on June 18, nearly 65 years after the first class had been held in a log cabin.  The cost of the new church, including a new organ, was $108,000.  For information on previous pastors and other history, click here.
First Church Fremont offers two worship services on Sunday morning.  We have the traditional worship at 9:00 am which features hymns and the chancel choir.  We also have a contemporary worship at 11 am which features the praise band.  Both services are relaxed and all type of dress is welcome.  We have Christian Education and Fellowship Hour between services that allows everyone to enjoy some refreshments, chat, and attend Sunday School.  If you worship with us, be sure to participate in Christian Education and Fellowship Hour!

We have numerous special services throughout the year, which include but are not limited to Wednesday night services during Lent, Maunday Thursday and Good Friday Services, and various recognition services.

The first Sunday of every month is Communion Sunday.  As United Methodists we believe that communion is open to everyone regardless of age or religious background.  We welcome everyone to God's table.
