Welcome to Fredonia First United Methodist (FFUMC) Church website. I'm Pastor Nettie. I've been a part of Fredonia First for a little more than a year now. Initially as the Pastor for Family Ministries and currently serving as full time Pastor. 

It's hard finding a church, isn't it? I've been in your shoes before...searching. Searching for answers, searching for direction and searching for a place to find God and community. I would sift through websites (as you are now) and I would go "church hopping" trying to find a place to call home. A place where I could be myself, my imperfect self. Wanting to share this journey of faith with others who like me, are searching for a place. A family friendly place where the focus is on the real relationship with God and not just being religious. 

It's hard to find "just the right place." In my church hopping, I learned that no church is going to meet every qualification and no church is going to be the perfect church. People will make mistakes and sometimes even disappoint us. How a church family handles those times makes the difference. Scripture is filled with the experiences of people who've made the same journey we're on. I wanted so to find a community of people to take this journey with. Something more than just me. Sitting in a park worshiping God all by myself. I asked God to lead me to my church family and that He did! 

Scripture tell us that God knows us. He made each one of us intentionally and for a specific purpose. Scripture also tells us that "God places the members in the body as He sees fit", and that He brings people (and their unique gifts) together for the common good. It is a great thing being together! Life is easier in community. 

Here's a little glimpse of who we are:

  • We are a church family who truly seeks God, We adhere to the beliefs as stated in the Apostles Creed. We strive to follow the teachings of Jesus in our everyday life and work always to grow in love for God and for others. We want to love as He does. 
  • We are a church family who focuses on creating a worship space and experience that is open to all. Family, friendly and comfortable. We offer a relaxed traditional service with a contemporary message. 
  • We are steadfast and at the same time ever changing. Keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus and His vision for our church family. Working together to find ways to meet the needs of our church family and the needs of our community...and always as individuals and as a church family, to "love God with our whole hearts and our neighbors as ourselves."

  We invite you to join us some Sunday morning for worship! Call if you have any questions. 

God's Blessings!

Pastor Nettie

What is Awana?

Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.

How does Awana fulfill this mission? Through God’s guidance and power, Awana strives to:

Awana reaches kids for Christ through fun, Scripture-rich experiences that lead them to know, love and serve Him.

Kids represent the greatest opportunity to make a long-term impact on our world for Christ. Offered through local churches, community groups and homes, Awana reaches kids where they’re at and walks alongside them in their faith journey. Those kids who come to faith at an early age discover God’s purpose for their lives and hope for the future. Ministry leaders and parents witness the profound impact Awana has in reaching kids with the gospel and watching them grow as long-term disciples. That’s why so many families and leaders have returned year after year, week after week, for more than three generations

Awana equips ministry leaders and parents to reach and disciple kids who impact their generation with the gospel.

God's vision to multiply leaders is planted in countless individuals. Awana nurtures this vision. Local churches and ministries partner with Awana to train leaders who help change kids’ lives forever. With more than 60 years of experience in training leaders, Awana has proven resources and relevant training content which helps them develop into vibrant leaders at home, church and in their community.

God is at work changing the world through the evangelism and long-term discipleship ministry of Awana.

Kids lives are forever transformed. Volunteers grow as leaders. Families become stronger and churches build community through active involvement in Awana. Our world needs the hope that only Christ gives. God is using Awana to raise up kids, parents and leaders devoted to knowing Scripture, loving Him and reaching others with the gospel.
