Goshen First UMC is a multiple-venue congregation, that exists to take Jesus Christ to all people, so that lives might be transformed all to the glory of God.
One Church – Two Sites
Goshen First UMC offers two distinct worship styles in two separate settings. The traditional service meets in the downtown Sanctuary, complete with stained glass windows and pews. Worship in this service consists of hymns, classic worship songs, special music from the chancel choir, various ensembles and instrumentalists, elements such as the Lord’s Prayer, and a printed order of worship.
The contemporary service meets in the Life Center. This service is an informal atmosphere where the music is modern and led by one of our worship bands. Media and drama are regular elements in this service, used to capture the audience’s attention and to draw them toward the Word of God.
In addition to the two worship styles, Goshen First UMC offers many other ministries that are led by full-time staff, including children and youth ministries, young adult ministries, a wide variety of Caring Ministries, and many more.
