Waterloo First is a community of faith that is committed to following Christ as we love God and our neighbor as ourselves. Waterloo First is a congregation of the United Methodist Church and as you look around this site you'll get a feel for our church. We hope you can join us in person so we can get to know you too! We have a rich history in the Cedar Valley community, having been the first church formed by the founders of the city of Waterloo. On Sunday mornings, some of us wear suits and dresses, others of us wear jeans or shorts. No matter how you show up, you can know that none of us are perfect, but with God we believe that anything is possible.
If you've been following God your entire life, you're welcome here. If you're new to faith, you're welcome here. If you're not really sure you believe in God at all, you're welcome here. No matter where you are on the road to faith, we want to walk alongside you as you go. Our hope is that as you join us on the journey, you'll discover a God who is active, alive, and at work in your life.
