WORSHIP @ 9:00am

Zoom Fellowship @ 8:30 & 10:00 am


At Fairmont UMC, our hope is that our church bells mark more than the time. 
 As they ring and resound through Fairmont we want to be reminded of the love and grace that Jesus Christ brought into the world. Because of this grace, we strive to Welcome with radical hospitality, Reach-out with love and empathy, and Serve our community with Christ, so that we may make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, with Open hearts, Open minds, and Open doors.

Fairmont United Methodist Church



Join us 5/16-6/13 as we take a look at the final work of Christ, and the commission for all Christians to be filled with the Spirit!!!

FUMC Confirmation
Join us for Confirmation!!!! We cover 5 different units:
1. Old Testament
2. New Testament
3. Church History
4. Methodist History
5. Social Principles
Confirmation at FUMC is centered around the beginning of a students walk with Christ, and not on the end or completion of a class. Our hope is to answer the fundamental questions of Confirmation: Can you confirm that your baptism worked; do you feel the Spirit of God calling you into greater relationship. 
We use fun, engaging curriculum, thought provoking questions, mentoring, and team-building to engage our students to take the steps for themselves to take ownership of their faith.
Join us Wednesdays in the Church Sanctuary @  6:30 pm!!
