We are a nurturing faith community

sharing God's love with all people.

Local and church mission is an important part of our children's program. Children visit shut-ins regularly.
Children are considered an integral part of our church family at First United Methodist of North Wilkesboro. It is our desire to do all we can to minister to them and their families, help them to grow in their knowledge of God and to experience His love for them through the programs, activities and mission opportunties that we offer.
