irst United Methodist Church is a well-established church that continues to grow. It is located in downtown South Bend and is committed to changing lives through the loving example of Jesus Christ. We invite you to come worship with us, strengthen your faith by taking a class, develop new friendships, and become part of a wonderful and nurturing church. We also have many opportunities for you to share your talents and gifts with others.
Worship is essential for our faith community and we worship in a variety of ways. During the summer we have an early service at Leeper Park. During the regular year we welcome various musical organizations to lead us. These groups include the St. Mary's Women's Chorus, as well as the Purdue Men's Varsity Glee Club.
