The South Sound


A Broader Community

First United Methodist Church is part of a community of United Methodist Churches in
our region that strive to collaborate in ministry together. Through our common Wesleyan
heritage and appreciation of the unique gifts of each church, we see great opportunity to serve God in the South Sound region through sharing our programs and resources. We work together
 by both creating new faith communities and by strengthening our relationship to God
within our existing congregations.

The Cooperative Ministry begins with prayer. Our pastors and professional lay staff meet weekly in a home for prayer, continuing education, and project management. Through this relationship of mutual support, we discern our choices.

We see the fruit of our collaboration in these collaborative programs and through each of our individual congregations.  So far, we’ve celebrated the appointment of a New Church Planter to the Steamboat Island Region, collaborated and supported our Summer children’s programming, and are developing a cooperative Youth Ministry.
