About Us

Our mission is to welcome all of God's people, equip ourselves and others to be Christ-like, and employ our spiritual gifts to share Christ with everyone we meet.

The First United Methodist Church of Elgin celebrates the diversity of the human community and affirms the sacred worth of each person.  We seek to follow the Way of Jesus, extending love to others, as we would want to be loved.  We welcome into full inclusion in the life and ministries of the church people of all sexual orientation (lesbian, gay, and bisexual) and gender identities (transgender), ages, races and national origins, physical or mental abilities, and economic conditions.  We especially proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in the church.  As a Reconciling Congregation, we believe that we are being reconciled to God and to one another.

Getting To Know You

   Thank you so much for taking the time to complete this form. Since I joined the church in the midst of the pandemic, this form will help me get to know you. In addition, this form, along with the Visioning Conference Survey, will help me be better aware of the needs of First UMC Elgin. It will also provide some needed input for the Visioning Conference being held in the fall.

   Please complete the form by June 6, 2021, because we are planning some in-person meet-and-greet-the-Pastor get-togethers over the summer once the city and state are fully open.

   I am so excited to have this opportunity to serve in ministry with you as we begin to envision where God is taking us!

With His Love and Mine,
Pastor Felicia
