Welcome to First United Methodist Church, Sweetwater!

On July 1st we welcome Michael Hubble who has been appointed to serve as pastor of our Church. As an Elder in the United Methodist Church, he has committed himself to live among us as a bearer of the Word of God, to share the sacraments of the faith with us, and to help us find our way in discipleship as people of God. 



“Be Alert and on Your Guard; Stand Firm in Your Faith. Act Like Men and Be Courageous; Grow In Strength!” 

God’s people are called to sing. His song has been written on our hearts, and we must give voice to what He has written there. And there may be nothing quite so powerful as a men’s chorus joining strong voices together in songs of honor and praise to their God and King! 

We are inviting the men in our congregation to join us for the musical 1st Corinthians 16:13. Let’s come together to sing praise to the Lord, to sing for joy, to sing to Him a new song, to declare his might and power! Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:15pm in the Choir Room. 

If you have any questions please contact Margareth Urias at 423-337-7903

On Sunday, August 3, at our Senior Adult Potluck, Dr. Keith Hickey, the Interim Director of Sweetwater City Schools, will present a program on the State of the Sweetwater City School System.
