The Weeks Ahead: Advent Season at Decatur First UMC

In addition to worship services, there are many ways to become involved in the life of our church. We offer a variety of Sunday School classes, Bible studies, small groups, drama ministries, service opportunities, and much more.

Welcome to Decatur First UMC website!

We're glad you've come to our web site where you can explore who we are and what we stand for.

We are open to all of God's children. You'll be warmly welcomed wherever you are on your faith journey and no matter where you've been or what you've been up to.

We invite and encourage you to worship any Sunday at any of our three services. You can also arrange a coffee, lunch, or office visit with one of our pastors by calling the church office at 404.378-4541 or clicking here to email their administrative assistant.
