Our Virtual Services

We have been worshiping virtually since March 15th, 2020 when the Covid 19 pandemic made it clear that we needed to be safe and do our part to flatten the curve. Our service is traditional, only shorter than when we are gathered in person. The 10:00 a.m. Zoom service at 


includes Welcoming, Hymn Singing (sing-along with worship leaders), Children's Moment, Scripture Reading, Sermon, Prayers, Sharing Spirit Stories, Announcements and break-out rooms for Fellowship after the service if you care to stay. (Bring your own coffee!) We celebrate Communion virtually once a month. Please join us at 10:00 am on Sunday mornings. If you miss a service, they are generally posted on our Facebook page within a couple of days https://www.facebook.com/renofirstumc/

We look forward to the day when we can gather together and celebrate the Good News. Until then, please join our church family online. 


Join With Us

Welcome to the Reno First United Methodist Church! Ours is a diverse congregation of almost 400 members actively seeking to discover what it means to live and work together as people of God.

We’d love to have you visit with us this Sunday. We have two services, a brief service at 8:15 (with no music which always includes communion), followed by an adult class at 9:00 in the Fellowship Hall. Our main service is at 10:00 (with our outstanding choir or other special music as well as a special message for the children) with a fellowship time following. We have a fellowship time following each service for visiting with our fellow members and visitors. We would love get to know you.

If you live in Reno or are thinking about moving here, explore our web site, visit our church and meet our congregration. See if Reno First might become your church home!

If you’re new, we hope this site will help you discover Reno First. If you’ve been worshipping with us for awhile, we hope this site will help you learn more about the church family you love.
