A letter from our pastor

Welcome to Cordele First United Methodist Church! 


Thank you for taking the time to visit our web page. I hope you will find it a helpful resource. 


The vision of Cordele First is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the World


At Cordele First you will find both dynamic contemporary and vibrant traditional worship services, English and Spanish speaking ministries, age-based and interest-based Christian education, and a wide variety of both on-campus and off-campus book and Bible studies during the week. 


There are gender-specific ministries (Christian Women’s Fellowship and United Methodist Men), as well as ministries designed specifically for children and youth. We have ministries for people at every station in their lives, beginning with our incredible nursery and going through our active SAM’s Club (Senior Adult Ministries). There are culturally relevant ministries for you. Look around the web page and you will see all that we do with children and youth. 


Our prayer ministry is essential to the members of this church and to those beyond its walls. Our music ministry is vibrant and varied and offers many opportunities for honoring God. There are also many ways to honor God through service, such as local, national, and international mission work teams, the Food Pantry and Helping Hands ministries, Care Team, and many more. 


While this web page does not list all of the ministries and programs at Cordele First, you can get a good idea of who we are and what we are about by browsing our ministry section. If you have questions that are not answered on that page, feel free to contact any staff member. 


When you visit Cordele First, please introduce yourself to me and let me know you’re a visitor, as I love to meet our visitors! Come join us this Sunday as we worship Christ together! 


    Yours…and His, 


    David W. Thompson
