First United Methodist Church of Joplin logo



In this worship service you’ll find traditional liturgies, creeds, messages, and sacraments that ground us in faith and remind us that ours is an “ancient-future” faith.

Music is a key part of every worship service at First Church. Congregational hymns and choruses are sung, often accompanied by our beautiful pipe organ. Each week, the Chancel Choir brings an anthem. Another congregational ensemble, the Sanctuary Singers, offers the occasional special, as do the Wesleyan Choir (youth), the Junior Choir (kids), and the Memorial Handbell Choir. We’d also love to have you become a part of one of these groups. If you’d like more information, email us at

Children ages 4 through the fifth grade are invited to worship during this time in a special service geared just for them.
