What to Expect

Welcome to First Wayne Street United Methodist Church!

Come early on Sunday and grab a cup of coffee and a pastry in the Fellowship Hall!


Our worship service is at 10:00 am every Sunday and lasts approximately 60 minutes.

You will experience the finest in traditional and blended worship at First Wayne Street.  Whether it is the Sanctuary Choir, Chamber Choir, Praise Team, Handbells or Youth Choir, you will be touched by the exquisite beauty of the music.  From Bach to Rutter to contemporary music, you will find it all at First Wayne.  The beautiful sanctuary was built for music, and here you will experience the best offered to the glory of God!

Holy Communion is served the first Sunday of the month in worship, and everyone is welcome to participate — whether you are a member of this church, a member of another church or not a member of any church.

First Wayne Street is a United Methodist Church, and we worship in the spirit of our Wesleyan tradition.

Child Care is available 8:45 am to 11:30 am on Sundays

Stop by the friendly Welcome Center, and we will guide you to our staffed nursery that is near the sanctuary.  Your child will be checked in and you will receive a pager so that we can reach you at a moment’s notice, or give us your cell phone number for a quick text message as needed.

Where will I park?

Downtown parking does not have to be challenging at all!  All parking meters are FREE on the weekends.

Park in the church and public lots as you approach the church on the right, or pass the church and park in our church lot at the corner of Wayne and Lafayette streets.

There is FREE street parking as well as convenient lots across the street (north of the church).


Come as you are and you will experience a warm welcome!  You will see everything from shorts/jeans to Business Casual to suits/dresses.
