Welcome to Renton First United Methodist Church!

We invite you to come and join us as we begin a new year. Join us as we ask where God's light is shining in this world. Join us as we “make disciples for the transformation of the world”. (United Methodist Mission Statement)

We hope that you and your family will experience God’s presence and love as we worship and fellowship together!

Blessings on you!

The Rev. Michele Campton-Stehr

The night before His death, Jesus went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray. During this Easter season, we invite you to do the same.  We are asking for at least one or two people for each one-hour shift for 24 hours between the end of Maundy Thursday gathering and the Good Friday service. Renton First UMC will be open for prayer in the sanctuary during normal business hours. Otherwise, we are inviting you to pray at home, and we have prayer bags with some various prayers and reading material that you may pick up either at Kennydale or Renton First UMC to assist you in your time of prayer.
