First United Methodist Church of Paragould is excited about the grand opening of our new worship space and fellowship hall/gym that has been under construction for more than a year. This is the third addition to the original building finished in 1926, with the addition of a fellowship hall and chapel in the 70's and a new welcome center that was completed a few years ago. The worship space will be the site for the contemporary worship, which takes place every Sunday at 9:00 am. The traditional services at 8 and 11:00 am will remain in the original church sanctuary.
In addition to the worship space and fellowship hall, two community rooms have been added. It is anticipated that they will be used for classrooms and meeting rooms. FUMC has long been a host to a myriad of community gatherings, offering space for Weight Watchers, Boy Scouts, AA, and others.
The grand opening will take place on Sunday, April 14 at 10:00 am. Everyone is invited to celebrate with us for the ceremony followed by a tour of the new space. A reception will follow. The first service will take place that morning at 9:00 am.
FUMC is located at 404 West Main Street.
