In the United Methodist Church, we believe that every person is sacred and valuable. We believe that everyone is created in the image of God and that we are all loved by Christ. Every Sunday, we want to celebrate that love and grace with creativity and hope and we want to invite you to experience this good news with your mind and your heart. We hope that when you worship at Waterloo First, you'll find find the hope, love and joy that comes from a community that is following Jesus together.
We know that coming to a church for the first time can be intimidating, even scary. You're not sure what to wear, when to stand up or sit down, what the secret handshake is and you have no idea what to expect. But this is what you can expect from Waterloo First, friendly and honest people trying to be more like Jesus. At Waterloo First, you can expect to come as you are. For some that means wearing a dress or a suit, for others, that means shorts and a t-shirt. At Waterloo First, you can expect to be welcomed to a traditional service, even with organ music most Sundays, but a relaxed and relevant service that brings our faith to life. You can expect to find a staffed nursery to take care of your kids, and you can expect to hear some kids crawl and cry around the church because your kids are always welcome in worship too.
At Waterloo First, you can expect to find grace and peace, because that's what Jesus expects us to give to one another.
