Many people arrive 30 minutes early. There's coffee and we can help with children's check-in.
Guest parking spots as well as handicap and senior parking are available in our main parking lot, on North St. Additional parking can be found just a few steps across from the Sanctuary on Center St.

From flip-flops to suits, we have it all. Be relaxed or dress up, we're just happy to see you!
In worship, we seek to experience the presence of God through our engagement with scripture, music, prayer and sacraments. Our services include a variety of music, from traditional hymns with a choir & pipe organ, to contemporary worship led by our praise band, Center 313.
Where Do I Take My Kids?
Children are welcome in our worship services. If you have children under the age of five, you may choose to take them to the Sunday morning nursery. Sunday school classes are available for children & teenagers of all ages from 9:30–10:30 am. We also offer Sunday school for children & adults with special needs.
Each service and Sunday school class shares a Biblically-focused message. Learn more about our United Methodist beliefs.

Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by: building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word. The kid's ministry is open to all children, from newborns to sixth graders.
At First United Methodist Church of Arlington we seek to create an environment where youth can grow in their faith and in community with one another. Our goal is to create a space where youth from different ages, races, and backgrounds can come together and explore their faith in a loving and grace filled environment.
Our church offers a vibrant and diverse set of opportunities to bring people together, no matter what stage of life you're in. Questions are encouraged and we seek answers together. New small groups, Bible studies and outreach opportunities are continually offered.
Even though we can't be connected in person, we can be connected to God's grace and God's love, and we can stay connected to each other as a church family during the next weeks - through phone, email, letters, and social media. Our staff is creating and posting daily content on our social media pages, including online devotionals, worship, videos, and more.
