About Us

First United Methodist Church a faith-based community committed to doing the work of God and living in Christ. We're centrally located in uptown Martinsville, Virginia, and easily accessible from all parts of Henry County.

Established in 1839, First Church's congregation is rich in tradition and history, but we also embrace the challenge of bringing the Word of God into the future.

Something for Everyone

Our congregation is made up of people from all age groups and backgrounds. Our ministries reflect this diversity and our church staff work hard to ensure that we have something to offer to everyone.

We have strong programs for children and youth to ensure that they are always focused in their faith.

Our worship and Sunday School programs reflect our diversity, and we have ongoing series of Bible studies and fellowship groups for women, young adults, and seniors throughout the year.

We are also a very mission-oriented church and our outreach ministries and mission work are focused on spreading the Word of God locally, nationally, and internationally. Our newly completed Uptown Ministry Center provides us with an excellent facility for fostering our ministries and Christian education.
