Welcome to First UMC of Santa Monica!
Friends near and far, welcome to the worship, service, and fellowship of Santa Monica First United Methodist Church. We invite you to visit us on Facebook or here on our webpage to discover all kinds of resources and opportunities for you and your family. This time of Shelter-in-Love can be a time of growing closer to God, family, neighbors, a time of growing in faith and prayer, a time to let music lift our spirits. And also, a time of reaching out and supporting those in greatest need. We look forward to worshiping with you online Sundays at 10 a.m. We welcome you into this community of faith!
