We know that visiting a church for the first time can sometimes be a bit confusing or even intimidating. We want to make your visit as easy as possible by showing you the layout of our building. Below you'll find the floor plans for our first, second, and basement floors at Anderson First United Methodist as well as a brief description of what each floor houses.
If it's you're visiting on a Sunday morning you'll find most of what you need on the first floor. Our 10:00am church service is found in the Sanctuary. Doors 1, 2, and 3 all provide easy access to the Sanctuary!
*Note - from Labor Day to Memorial Day we meet out at Davis Park. Click here for more information about Summer Worship.
You'll also find our offices (room #128-139). Our office hours are Monday-Thursday 9:00am-4:00pm and Friday 9:00am-12:00pm. Someone will be waiting to greet you at Room 128!
If you're looking for a place to cozy up with a good book, our Library is also located on the first floor of the building. We've got a wide selection of books to choose from. Check it out!
Our second floor gives you access to our balcony in the Sanctuary. This is a great vantage point to view our worship services at 10:00am on Sunday mornings.
If you're a 6th-12th grade student, check out Anderson First UMC Youth Ministry, Pulse! We meet each Sunday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Anderson First United Methodist Church for dinner, lesson, and games in the Youth Classrooms 203/207.
First Kids meets on the second floor each Sunday morning. Following the opening of the service, all children age 4 years through 5th grade are invited to gather in service before processing out of the sanctuary with adult leaders and going to the First Kids or Godly Play
Our building's basement is full of life! The largest space is our Fellowship Hall. Fellowship Hall hosts many programs and activities such as AARP, Community Cafe, Quilters, and more.
You'll also find Gateway Child Care & Respite. Gateway includes a full-day licensed child care program that welcomes children of all abilities.
During the fall, winter and spring months, there is children’s programming from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. p.m. on Wednesday evenings in the Step by Step Kids room. This experience uses UMC Deep Blue curriculum as a foundation for the program, incorporating art, physical activity, music and service projects. And there is always a snack!
