Update as of August 5th

Dear Church Family & Friends,

I want to give you a reminder that we will have “in-person” worship this Sunday, August 9th. Our leadership team knows the cases continue to rise in the state of Florida regarding COVID-19, so we understand many of our dear folks wanting to stay in virtual worship, please do not feel obligated to come to the Sanctuary. If you have any reason that you are uncomfortable being in worship, or the slightest bit under the weather, our heart is with you as you experience God‘s grace virtually.

The in-person worship schedule for this Sunday, we will have a Communion Service at 8 o’clock and I will give a brief message. 9 o’clock will be our Contemporary Service, we are offering Sunday school at that time for the children.
11 o’clock will be our Traditional Service. Both the 9 and 11 o’clock services will be live streamed on Facebook live. Please note again that we have switched the times for the Contemporary and the Traditional Services.

God is moving even in the midst of these crazy days. We will continue to practice our disciplines as we worship in person this week and trust the good Lord’s grace to protect and guide and lead us as we fulfill his calling… “Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together…”

About First United Methodist Church in Dunnellon



Jesus calls us to be the light on the hill and the salt of the earth. There is no doubt that there is darkness all around us in our world today, but there is "Good News"!
Come and be a part of our community, our family, at the Dunnellon Methodist Church. We love to proclaim the Joy of the Lord and pray for God's amazing peace. The "Word" says, "Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice." We love because He first loved us, and our Lord is near to our hearts.
We believe our community is our church and we would love to be a blessing to you and yours.
