Guest parking is available in the church parking lot. The lot is immediately off NE 5th Street. As you head east on NE 5th Street towards Biscayne Boulevard stay in the right lane. Just before you reach Biscayne Boulevard, turn right through the gate. Senior Adult and Handicapped parking spaces are located closest to the building entrance. As a Downtown congregation, parking is tricky! Depending on attendance, it may be harder to find parking. For that we apologize. If all the parking spaces in our lot are taken, we ask you kindly to use the metered parking in front of the church on Biscayne Boulevard. To reach the metered parking, cross Biscayne Blvd. Head south [that's a right turn on Biscayne Boulevard]. From Biscayne Boulevard turn left at the first intersection, making a U-turn to the metered parking there. The church is directly across the Boulevard from these meters.
Ushers and Friendly Greeters
You will be assisted by an usher to find a Sunday School class, or a seat in the Sanctuary if you desire. They will also assist you with any other need. If an Usher/Greeter is unavailable, please locate our bulletin board with a site map and general information.
If you attend the Traditional Worship Service at 10:55 a.m., special equipment is available when needed. Equipment for the hearing impaired and a defibrillator (heart start) machine are available.
After the Service
Following the service you are invited to meet with the pastor at the vestibule entrance. Please also take the opportunity to "meet and greet" other worshipers. Refreshments in the Fellowship Hall provide for this. If you desire a private appointment with the pastor, please give your full contact information to one of our Ushers/Greeters.
How Can I Join FUMC Miami?
You are invited to join First United Methodist Church of Miami. All are invited to become members though membership is not required for active participation. Becoming a member of a church is one way of saying “This feels like my spiritual home.” Our hope is that FUMC of Miami is a place where people can grow in their faith and give their lives in service to their neighbor.
To join in membership, your prior baptism in a Christian denomination will be recognized or you will be baptized into the Christian faith in any of our worship services. You may transfer your membership from another church or you may profess your faith in Jesus Christ for the first time. We gladly welcome you!
If you are considering membership, please contact Pastor Cynthia Weems directly at cweems @ fumcmiami.com
