Welcome to the 1st Church Website

Welcome to 1st United Methodist Church of Punta Gorda! We are a congregation of believers in Jesus Christ, seeking an intimate relationship with our heavenly Father.

1st Church worships in both traditional and contemporary styles every Sunday morning in person and online. Each service allows for the Holy Spirit to provide warm expressions of love and inspiration, charging our lives with hope and faith.

In all we do, we are dedicated to the mission to offer new life in Jesus Christ, by Seeking, Shaping, and Sending Disciples.

Praise in the Park will be held in Gilchrist Park at 8 am every Sunday.
