Welcome to Atlanta First! We’re thrilled you’ve chosen to visit our website and pray that you will experience God’s presence in a new way! As a part of the United Methodist Church family, our mission is to put our faith into action by making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. To that end, we have four main focuses: we worship God, serve the people of our community, grow together in our faith and love for God, and engage with one another, with the city of Atlanta, and the world beyond, striving to be models of the Christian life that Jesus taught us to live.

We hope you will “Join the Movement!”


God has given us so much, asking nothing in return. It is only right that we should express our gratitude and love in return. Worship provides a venue for this, allowing us to focus our thoughts and hearts on God through scripture reading, prayer, singing songs, and through the messages delivered by our Pastor through her sermons. We invite you to join us in worship, every Sunday morning at 11 am. Please visit our worship page to learn more.


We are called upon by Jesus to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. There is no greater expression of this love than to freely serve those neighbors who are in need. This strengthens our own connections with God, for as Jesus taught, when we have served ‘the least of these brothers of mine, you did it for me.’ Please visit our serve page to learn how you can serve with us in our community.


God's grace is a continual presence in our lives. Through studying the scriptures, prayer, and serving others, this grace will grow our love and understanding of God. We invite you to join our small group studies and Sunday school classes to help you grow in your own relationship with God. Please visit our grow page to learn what opportunities we offer.


Atlanta First is more than just a place to worship, serve and grow together. We are also a family. Together we share the joys, sorrows, triumphs and tragedies of life. Through engaged fellowship we experience with one another the love that God wants us to have for Him and each other. Please visit our engage page to see the opportunities for fellowship we offer.

The Atlanta First Day School (AFDS for short), founded in 2010, offers top quality Christian-focused child care in the heart of the city. AFDS cares for children ages infant (6+ weeks) thru Kindergarten. Please see the AFDS flyer or visit the website:
