First United Methodist Williamsburg

Who We Are

First United Methodist Church Williamsburg was founded in 1887.

It is a growing church with frequent visitors, professions of faith and baptisms. The range of ages include both senior families and young families with youth and children. The Worship service is a modern blend of traditional and contemporary. The service is highlighted by media and video clips, and power point sermons. This church offers something for the whole family. It is part of the Williamsburg First / Pleasant View charge in the Corbin District of the Kentucky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Located in the heart of Whitely County and within walking distance from the University of the Cumberlands...,

Williamsburg First is a great place to fellowship, and feel like you really belong. It is exciting to join others who truly love the Lord.

The church's ministry is to be a place for establishing foundations for Christian living and celebration of spiritual growth.

There is more to a church than a building; the church is people. The church at this moment is laughing, crying, feeling, helping.
