About Us

We are people growing in faith and love for God and neighbor. Located on the campus of Illinois State University, we are home to the United Methodist Wesley Foundation campus ministry. We are, however, more than a campus church. We are people of God serving the entire community with ministries that touch individuals of all ages and from many walks of life as we seek to fulfill the vision of the United Methodist Church of “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.”

Individuals from many different backgrounds, and with very different life journeys, have experienced the love of God here and made this their church home. We hope that you may discover ministries in this caring and lively congregation that will both meet your needs and provide opportunities for you to be in ministry both in the church and through its outreach.

We hope you accept our invitation to join us for worship each week. The people of First United Methodist Church look forward to meeting you.
