Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update March 31st:

As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus, we will continue to cancel all church activities and hold our Sunday worship and devotions online. As of now we plan to follow this schedule through the end of April to adhere to our Presidents most recent recommendation. We tremendously miss having our church family come together physically to worship our Heavenly Father together, but we know it is so important to promote social distancing to protect everyone. 

Please continue to access our Facebook page and Youtube channel through our website at

John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

About First United Methodist Church in Dunnellon



Jesus calls us to be the light on the hill and the salt of the earth. There is no doubt that there is darkness all around us in our world today, but there is "Good News"!
Come and be a part of our community, our family, at the Dunnellon Methodist Church. We love to proclaim the Joy of the Lord and pray for God's amazing peace. The "Word" says, "Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice." We love because He first loved us, and our Lord is near to our hearts.
We believe our community is our church and we would love to be a blessing to you and yours.

Pastor Eddie Fulford


The First United Methodist Church was founded in 1885.
From just a small group that year, we have grown to over 1,000 members. With the guiding of the Holy Spirit the church was able to build a new facility in 2003.

Currently we have three distinct worship Sunday worship services:
Communion Worship Service at 8:00am
Praise Service at 9:30am
Traditional Worship Service at 11:00am
During the 9:30 hour we offer Sunday School for both children and adults. During the 11:00 hour there is a Childrens Sunday School and Youth Sunday School.

Wednesday evening there are many opportunities for everyone:
Dinner is served at 5:15pm and is free to all who attend.
Immediately following the dinner there are separate classes for all at 6:00pm.
Nursery from birth to 5 years
Children classes for 6 years to 11 years
Youth classes for middle school and high school
Adam and Eve class for the 55ish and under
Worship Service in Sanctuary

Pastor Eddie shares his time between the children and then leads the study in the Sanctuary.
