Welcome to Renton First United Methodist Church!

We invite you to come and join us for worship on Sundays. Our church has been a presence in Renton since 1902 and we continue to share God’s love through our faithful discipleship in our community. Take some time and browse our site. Listen or watch our weekly service. Join us in “making 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
