On behalf of the First United Methodist Church of Geneva family, I want to welcome you to our website. I hope that you find it helpful and expressive of who we are as a church. We are a community which gathers for worship, Bible study, and fellowship in order to better know our Lord.

I am glad that you are visiting us online. We welcome you -- just as you are. At the First United Methodist Church of Geneva, there is a place for everyone.

I look forward to attending a church service where I will feel welcomed, uplifted, and encouraged in the Lord. I look for a church with a positive approach, one that will challenge me to grow in my faith and to move forward to the next level of hope and encouragement. I enjoy worship that reminds me that the gospel really is Good News. Attending such a service gives me energy, insight, and positive direction for the week.

This is the very experience I wish for people that worship here in Geneva. I am a strong believer people should leave church feeling stronger, happier, and more encouraged than they did when they arrived. I believe some of the greatest healing work that Jesus Christ did, for and with people, was healing them physically and welcoming them back into the community of faith. He continues to do so today through the Holy Spirit. In a faith community we receive hope, we are challenged to grow in our faith, and we gain tools for positive living.

Whatever we can do to help you, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be thrilled to hear from you and to help you along your faith journey. I also want to invite you to join us for our Sunday worship service, or for one of our community-wide events. We have a lot of opportunities to get connected, so check out our online calendar and visit with us at FUMC Geneva where there is passion for God and compassion for people.

In the meantime, if you have a need of a spiritual nature, a prayer request, or would like to discuss our church, please contact me, Pastor Lisa, at (407) 349-9596 or send me an email.

I look forward to greeting you in person.

Blessings always,
Dr. Joseph Okello
