First United Methodist Church of Mesa started out on small parcel of land on 1st Avenue in the Village of Mesa in 1893. Over the decades it has grown to include nearly a city block with the sanctuary and spire at 1st Avenue and Center Street dominating downtown’s skyline for 67 years. 


Built in the early 1950’s, our sanctuary has served as our physical place of worship for over 60 years.
