Welcome to First Church

We, the people of First United Methodist Church West Lafayette, welcome everyone, through all life’s stages, with arms that are open, respectful, and loving.

And by everyone, we mean regardless of a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, race, ability, bank balance, or background. As a Reconciling Congregation, we welcome you into our church family, for it is by joining hands that we support one another and share our faith journey together. Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
