First United Methodist Church of Seattle is a progressive, spiritual community advocating for the homeless and hungry and creating a refuge of inclusive Christianity.
We’re called “First Church” because we are Seattle’s first congregation, established in 1853. We cherish our place in Seattle’s past, present, and future.
First Church has something for everyone. Find out how you can get involved!
We are proud to belong to the Reconciling Ministries Network, a community “mobilizing United Methodists of all sexual orientations and gender identities to transform our Church and world into the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love.” We accept members of all sexual orientations and gender identities into our congregation and support full inclusion in every aspect of church life.
