Welcome to First United Methodist Church of

Ellwood City 

 Message from our Pastor
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!


The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our daily lives.   Yet, we will continue to create meaningful ways to stay connected during this period of “Stay at Home” order.  We will continue to follow the Local, State, Federal, and CDC recommendations for”Social Distancing".   All activities have been cancelled until further notice.  Please monitor our current media sources for any updates. 


Again, rest assure that our leadership team is working diligently to create  ways to stay connected and to offer the best practice of care and concern of our Church.  If you have any concerns or have a need please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Angelique Bradford at 412-722-2806.


Continue to pray for those who have been directly affected by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our Nation, our community, those in the medical field, first responders, police, those who are still working, and the entire world.  I am praying for you and with you and please remember to pray for each other. 


He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.   I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”  Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.   He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.     

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,  Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.   A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.  Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.   Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;  For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.


Grace, Peace, & Hope!

Pastor Angelique

Daily Readings

The daily readings expand the range of biblical reading in worship and personal devotion by providing daily citations for the full three-year cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship. ~

We are a "Five Practices" Church.  In all that we do everyday, as individuals and as a congregation, we try to live out the "Five Practices of a Fruitful Congregation ":  Radical Hospitality, Passionate Worship, Intentional Faith Development, Risk Taking Mission and Service, and Extravagant Generosity.  The Five Practices for a Fruitful Congregation Model was designed by Bishop Robert Schnase.
The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.   First United Methodist Church believes the local church provides the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs.   Jesus' words in Matthew 28:19-20 provide us with our mission:   "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you."
