Putting God’s Love for the world into action

Sundays at 9:30 a.m.


We value the health and safety of our community, especially those most vulnerable to COVID-19. As a result, we will not be having church in person until further notice. We are working on ways to continue reaching out to one another during this unprecedented time. Even though we are not meeting in the church building, we continue to be the church every time we reach out to our neighbors and practice kindness.

Tempe First is a United Methodist church located in downtown Tempe, near ASU.  We are a diverse community called to SHARE compassion; NURTURE faith; CELEBRATE diversity; BUILD community; and INSPIRE hope, strength and courage.

Welcome to Tempe First UMC!

Whether you are visiting for the first time or a long-time member, together we worship, serve our community, strengthen our faith, and grow together in God’s love. You are welcome here.
