Our weekly worship service is held on Sunday mornings at 11 am. Following the traditional format of the United Methodist Church, we worship through music, prayer, scripture reading and an uplifting message provided by Pastor Jasmine. The service features music played on our organ, singing by our chancel choir and guest singers, and frequently a solo performer during the offertory. Every service begins with the chiming of the hour by our historic bell. Guests and members are invited to volunteer to help ring the bell at the start of worship!
On the first Sunday of each month we partake the Sacrament of Holy Communion. This sacred breaking of bread reenacts the Last Supper, a pivotal moment in Jesus' ministry with his Disciples. Through the words spoken and the consumption of the sanctified bread and juice, we admit our sins, and reaffirm our faith in Jesus and the miracle of his resurrection.
For a more complete worship experience, we invite you to attend one of our Sunday School classes that meet at 9:45 am Sunday mornings.

We welcome children of all ages to Atlanta First, who are invited to attend worship with their families. Pastor Jasmine always makes a point to deliver an uplifting message to the attending children during the Children’s moment in worship. We also offer children’s church and there is a staffed nursery for infants and toddlers available from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. For more information, please visit our Children's Ministry Page or email Children@AtlantaFirstUMC.org.
If you are unable to attend in person, you are invited to worship with us online in one of our Live Streams:
You are invited to join us on Wednesday Nights at 5:15 pm as we come together to pray. You can drop in or stay the whole time; just make it a priority to join in intentional prayer on Wednesday Nights!
If you are unable to attend in person, you are invited to pray with us online in one of our Live Streams. We monitor the chat on our FaceBook stream during the service, so you can share prayer concerns with us and we will pray for you!
"One With" focuses on Christian Unity and our Holy Communion prayer: "[Lord,] By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory and we feast at his heavenly banquet."
