First United Methodist Church

First United Methodist Church is a long established church in the “county seat” town of Amite, Louisiana.  The church is nestled among beautiful oak trees in a pleasant neighborhood just north of downtown.  The Vision of our church is, “Becoming a God-centered church family by Inviting and Encouraging all to become Disciples of Jesus Christ; Reaching out to others, Serving as the hands and feet of God.”  The church is known for its active Children’s Ministry with “God’s Gang” for 4th-6th grade, and “Vacation Bible School.”  We’re also known for our popular Youth Ministry, which includes summer missions and trips, as well as weekly fellowship events.  “Mother’s Morning Out” is our weekday program for preschool age.  We are also known for our praise and worship with music ranging from the traditional to contemporary, including seasonal cantatas and contemporary style worship.  Worship is vibrant and inspiring.  Outreach is an important part of our church life, supporting various helping agencies and women’s centers, such as Women’s Life Ministries and the Southeast Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home.  Our church is dynamic and generous, with a heart for Christ.  We are a growing and vibrant family of faith with a membership of 368 and an average worship attendance of 110.
