Thanks for visiting our website. Jacksonville First United Methodist Church is a dynamic congregation with a huge heart for the Jacksonville community. There are many ways to become involved with us, and we hope that you will visit, get to know us, and let us know how we may serve you.

This Sunday:

ONE service at 8:30 am in the sanctuary. Come dressed in work clothes, and we will divide and deploy to help in the community following the service. No Sunday school.


Tornado Relief:

Jacksonville First UMC has been designated as a distribution center for relief supplies. This will be in the gym, or McWhorter Activity Center. Right now, we will be open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, although that could change.

Suggested donations:

  • laundry detergent
  • mops/brooms
  • heavy duty rakes
  • yellow dishwashing gloves
  • bubble wrap
  • old newspapers
  • flashlights
  • batteries, all sizes, battery packs
  • air mattresses
  • insect repellent
  • tarps
  • shovels
  • contractor-grade trash bags (regular ones won't hold up)
  • non-perishable food
  • cleaning supplies
  • hygiene supplies

We are NOT taking clothing, but would suggest you contact Community Enabler Developer, who has a clothes closet already set up.

If you need supplies, please come to the gym between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. No ID is required. There is also a free charging station if you need to charge your phone.

The Serving Table WILL be open this Saturday, March 24 beginning at 11:00 am.

The Serving Table is a meal provided monthly which is open to the community. It is free, and no ID is required and no questions are asked. The objective is to feed anyone who is hungry, so come and join us!

Monetary Donations: Monetary donations should be made to the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama in Anniston, who has set up two funds for tornado relief. Their website is yourcommunityfirst.org, and you may choose to donate to Jacksonville or to Northeast Alabama. Both of these choices are "no fee" funds, which means that 100% of every donation goes to relief efforts.  You may make a check payable to JFUMC, (we will funnel it to the Foundation), just be sure to put "tornado relief" on the memo line.
