“Over 160 years of faithful service to Atlanta”
Atlanta First United Methodist Church celebrated its 160th year of existence in 2007. With such a long and glorious history of service to God and the community, our story has come to hold great meaning for us. Many interesting and prominent members of the community have worshipped with us over the years. The name of the church changed from First Methodist Episcopal Church, South to First Methodist Church in 1939 when the ME Church North and ME Church South reunited. In 1968 the name changed again from First Methodist Church to First United Methodist Church when the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Bretheren formed the United Methodist Church. Though this short history speaks more about locations and buildings, the story of Atlanta First United Methodist Church is really about people: Their faith, generosity and sacrifices throughout the years have carried AFUMC through more than 150 years of growth and development. Its history is richly adorned with noteworthy and recognizable names relating to the founding of Atlanta and its modern development, AFUMC has always chosen to remain in the center of town where it can minister to the spiritual needs of all who wish to come and attend, both rich and poor.
