Welcome to the First United Methodist Church in Horseheads website. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. First United Methodist Church in Horseheads has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday at either 8 or 10:30 am to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

lenten dinners

For many years now area Churches gather together
to enjoy a small meal and message each Wednesday during Lent.  Dinner begins at 6:00 pm followed by a presentation at 6:30 pm.  Suggested donation is $3.50.  Proceeds will benefit area Hunger Programs.  We are finished by 7:00 pm.  If you have not attended before you could make this your Lent Devotion and come join us!  Dinner is usually Soup and a Sandwiich and dessert.  All 
Homemade!  All are welcome!  Below is the 
schedule for this year.
