About Us

First Church has provided a Methodist presence in Conway, South Carolina since 1828. Through the years, First UMC has been known for the commitment of her members to the church and community, a strong Christian witness and an excellent music program. Although proud of her history, and strongly traditional in worship and theology, First United Methodist Church has not lingered in the past, but built upon that solid foundation. The progressive attitude of the Methodists in Conway can be seen in our Christian witness as well as in our architecture. Visitors to Conway, pausing to view the three distinct styles of our sanctuaries along Fifth Avenue, see evidence of this church's determination to live faithfully into the future. Please don’t hesitate to inquire about church activities and events, and by all means when you are in downtown Conway, stop by and enjoy a stroll through our historic cemetery and peacefully shaded courtyard.
