First United Methodist Church of Bristol


FUMC has made the decision to return to virtual worship only for the time being. Local health departments and the CDC are urging people to limit their face to face gatherings while our region experiences the worst COVID-19 wave we’ve seen so far. As safe as we made our worship services, we cannot make it No Risk and we wish to do our best to protect our members, staff, and community. We look forward to gathering again in person as soon as it would be safer to do so.

Virtual Worship is at 11am. Join us online via our live streamed services, or watch later — Past and current services can be found here.

We have just launched a Facebook Group to fellowship, pray, and support each other virtually.

What We Do

In the Before Times and hopefully in the future, we can return to weekly Book Studies, Sunday School, and our Contemplative Service as well as our Traditional Service.

We are very involved in our local community and with ministries abroad. We partner with local charities and missions. We are trying to bring Christ’s mercy, light, and love to all the places we can reach. We can best do this by striving to support and live in harmony with each other and with those we encounter in our lives.


We are located at 322 Vance Dr. in Bristol, Tennessee
