About Us


For nearly 200 years, Smyrna First United Methodist Church created community and opportunities to know God and His love for all people. Our ministries and missions build spaces to learn more about God’s love for our communities and us. We live this out by allowing Jesus to guide our vision and loving the person in front of us. We invite you to be a part of this community, there is a place for you here!
