Mission Statement:

The purpose of Madison First United Methodist Church is to make
Disciples ofJesus Christ who make Disciples of Jesus Christ. We
exist to help people meet Jesus, know Jesus, and serve Jesus.

Vision Statement:
Madison First United Methodist Church fulfills the need for a safe place
to consider and respond to the Gospel Message. We insure that all those
we encounter experience the warm and helpful support they need as they
walk life's journey. We commit ourselves to living the Biblical model of
the church.


We stand on the following values:
We obey the Great Commandment by loving God first, then loving each other after the example of Christ's love for us. (Matthew 22: 37-39).

We fulfill the Great Commission as we make disciples, baptizing them and helping them grow in obedience to Christ. (Matthew 28: 19-20).

We are convinced that what matters to God also matters to us. We believe that no Church can stand still. Its relationship with God is a journey that must move forward or die. We follow the example of Jesus, serving people as we promote justice and fulfill their physical and spiritual needs. We stand firmly on our heritage as United Methodist which is grounded in the primacy of Scripture as informed by Christian tradition, enlivened in experience, and tested by reason. Christ centered worship, prayer, giving, and service represent natural responses to a meaningful relationship with our living Savior.

We are praying for a great response to help children and animals in our community. Thank you for caring!!!!



Dear FUMC friends and family,

We would like to express our deepest thanks and gratitude for your many acts of kindness and compassion. The prayers, cards, and flowers were comforting. We appreciate the choir for taking time out of your busy schedules to sing. Thank you, especially, to the United Methodist Women for preparing and serving after the funeral. Everything was lovely. We are grateful for friends like during this time of sorrow.

Jackie and family
