Welcome Statement

Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Tuscaloosa, a church that has existed 

for over 200 years. That’s not by accident. Rather, FUMCT remains a vibrant 

church by honoring its past, rejoicing in its present, and embracing its future.

Our church welcomes everyone—and that means all. Every. Single. Person. 

At FUMCT, no person should ever hesitate when wondering if Christ’s 

bountiful harvest is offered to them. It is. Everyone is welcomed to our church 

without judgment or prejudice.

FUMCT is a place to ponder the most difficult of questions even if people 

may arrive at different answers at different times and circumstances. We will not let disagreements impede what we have in common: the desire to walk as faithful 

disciples of Jesus Christ. We invite people to enter, interact, and explore 

elements of Christianity without fear or judgment.

We believe we should be as welcoming as the depth of God’s grace. Above all, 

this church believes that God is Love.

We have four Sunday services and both traditional and contemporary worship 

formats, each with its own pastoral and musical styles. You’ll find many 

opportunities to form a genuine relationship with God and to get involved, 

from joining a small group to teaming up for hands-on community service. 

Our wide variety of programs serves newborns through seniors 

and all in between.

So welcome to FUMCT! No matter where you are on your Christian path, 

you will find a home here.

Join Us!
