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.

Pastoral Staff - Bill Gepford and Melissa Gepford
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.
