Long Description:
"First Church’s Name – Originally, the name was First Methodist Episcopal Church. When three branches of Methodists united as the Methodist Church in 1939, we became First Methodist Church. When the Evangelical United Brethren and Methodist Church united in 1968, our name changed to First United Methodist Church."
"In 1954 a lot was purchased between Vance Drive and Sparger Road in Holston Hills. That November, the church launched a challenging building fund campaign building. On June 30,1957, the congregation moved into its lovely new hilltop location. The brick and glass walled structure with spacious classrooms and a roomy fellowship hall was officially opened by a very large, enthusiastic crowd. Paying for the spacious facilities was a challenge. On March 18,1973, members gleefully celebrated ‘out-of-debt Sunday’ by burning of the notes."
