First United Methodist Church celebrates God's transforming love as seen in Jesus Christ as we worship, learn, build spirit-filled community and reach out to our world. We seek to be a people of hope, promise, healing, justice and joy. We seek to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who do not belong to a faith community. We celebrate diversity, and welcome persons from all walks of life. We also strive to nurture, name, and call out the giftedness of each person for the work of redemptive love in all God's creation. We are located 1 block south of Division Street/Highway 23 on 5th Ave So. in Downtown St. Cloud, MN. Coming from the west on Highway 23/Division Street, make a right hand turn on 5th Ave, the last stop light before the Granite City Bridge, and park in the lot behind the City Hall. Coming from the east on Highway 23, cross the Granite City Bridge and turn left at 5th Ave So and Division Street, go straight ahead and park in the City Hall parking lot, first left after the stop light. We are right across the street.
