If you would like to inquire about membership at First United Methodist Church or
learn more about the ministry opportunities at First Church, we encourage people to
attend a First Church Orientation. They are once every other month and include a
two-hour session and a light lunch after church.

The next session will be June 8 12:00 to 2:00 PM, Room 202


Are you new to First Church? Every second Sunday of the month, all are welcome
to a Newcomers Lunch after worship. Look for the blue umbrella in Collins Hall
and go eat together somewhere in Portland. Come join us!


For newcomers (or longtime visitors!) who want to “go deep” and learn more about
the church, we offer a Going Deeper small group which functions as a United Methodism
101 class. It is great for newcomers and long-time members will get something out
of it too. Wednesdays at 6:00pm starting April 23th


Once a year we host a lunch for new members of the church in the past year.
Our next New Members’ Recognition Lunch is May 4th, 2014 after worship in the
Fireside Room. Invitations will be sent in mid-March for this exclusive lunch with
the clergy and Newcomers team.
