Our Story


Individuals have stories. Churches do too.

The story of First United Methodist Church in Lebanon, Tennessee, covers a span of 200 years. For historians like Geneva Thomas, you may want to check out the church’s history.

First United Methodist Church’s story continues to be written. The plot of its story is the Love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.┬áSuch Love is expressed in the denomination’s self-identity: “Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.”

Our Story is that each of us has a story of God’s Love at work in our lives. That Divine Love is freeing us from all that binds and burdens us for life that is abundant and eternal.

Our church’s Story is dynamic–it changes as persons write their own stories within.

So come and find your story in the Greatest Love Story ever told.
