New Here

The First United Methodist Church of Oviedo (aka First Church Oviedo) is a 1,400 member, multi-generational church located in the heart of Oviedo.  We offer two worship gatherings of varying styles, as well as many opportunities for spiritual growth and emotional support during the week. We are very active missionally, both in our own community and throughout the world.

Our mission is FOLLOWing Jesus Christ to MAKE disciples for the TRANSFORMation of the World.

At First United Methodist Church of Oviedo, we always welcome new friends, and we hope that you will join us for worship services and weekly activities. We believe in having fun and fellowship, and would love for you to be a part of anything we do!

In addition to in-person worship we offer many online and live streaming opportunities to connect. Please join us on Saturday evenings at 6:00 p.m. (Contemporary) and Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. (Traditional). See our live streamed service by clicking HERE.

 We also have a mid-week prayer service on Wednesdays at 12:15 p.m. in the Historic Sanctuary that is currently live-streamed.
