About Our Church

About Us

First United Methodist Church is a frontier congregation with frontier roots and frontier character.  First UMC was the first church founded in the entire state of Wyoming, and from a September Sunday in 1867, this church aimed to be at the boundaries—the frontier—of God’s creation to preach the Good News.

To this day, First UMC proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ to everyone.  We preach to the poor, the meek, the homeless, yes, and also to the banker and school teacher airwoman and policeman. We preach Good News to all. Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.

At First United Methodist Church-Cheyenne, we believe everyone needs to hear the Good News.  That’s why we are an inclusive, welcoming church ready to greet you with a kind word or a cup of coffee before we join together in worship and praise.

But we don’t stop there.  We are Methodists; so we believe the proclamation of the Good News doesn’t stop at the doors to our sanctuary but spills out into our community with acts of piety, mercy, and justice.  We are a mission-oriented church, ready to lend a hand to our neighbours in need.

Come to be a part of this church.  Come to preach Good News to Cheyenne!
