Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Morris!

Since 1842, the First United Methodist Church of Morris, Illinois has been a rich community of faith, family and friends. Formed as a society by early Methodists, called the “People of the Way,” we follow the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a congregation of children, young families, youth and adults, we live in the faith legacy of Rev. John Wesley and Rev. Charles Wesley, “For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourself: it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2: 8-9

Rooted in downtown Morris, we branch out into the world, to live our faith in God, proclaim the love of Jesus Christ, share and witness the power of the Holy Spirit, in “Acts of Piety” and “Acts of Mercy,” believing that faith without works is dead.

We are “Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world,” one life at a time.
Connect to grow, go to serve!

In Christ,

Pastor Robert Sathuri
