About Our Church

We are your neighbors at the First United Methodist Church of Shelton. We are a welcoming family of God, committed to becoming more and more like Jesus Christ. Together we are growing in faith, knowledge and love of God. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we serve God by serving others throughout the community and the world.

The First United Methodist Church of Shelton was organized on September 17, 1882, as an outgrowth of the Scattergood mission. First located on Coram Ave, we moved to our current location on the corner of Rocky Rest Road and Long Hill Avenue in 1964. We invite you to renew yourself spiritually with our warm and friendly church family. Take time for yourself and time to be with Christ. In today’s unpredictable and turbulent society, we realize that our success and security can only be achieved when we live the Gospel message in our care for one another. Our human need to be loved and to find happiness is fulfilled when we seek Christ first and shine His light unto the world.
