I'm New to Ypsi First United Methodist Church  


Welcome to our church.  We are so happy you found us.  All are welcome.  


We embrace diversity and affirm all persons.  We believe God's welcome is not limited by race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, citizenship, language, gender identity, age, marital status, economic condition, and physical or mental ability. 


Where are you located?

Ypsi First United Methodist Church is located just north of downtown Ypsilanti at 209 Washtenaw Ave, Ypsilanti, MI 48197. There is a church parking lot on the other side of Washtenaw Avenue.  Please enter the church through the East or West Washtenaw Avenue entrances.


Is the church equipped to serve special needs individuals?

Our building is fully accessible by elevator.  A T-coil loop system is available for those using hearing aids, so please ask whoever is running the audio desk in the rear of the sanctuary for assistance.  Service animals are welcome to attend our service.


Our worship service is at 10:30 AM on Sunday mornings. The service is one hour and is followed by fellowship time with coffee and treats in our lower level.


Our worship service tends toward traditional. It includes hymns sung with our organ and piano, special music from the choir, and preaching and prayer.


•Children in Pre-Kindergarten-4th grade are invited to Sunday School after Children's Time in worship.

•Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month. All persons are welcome to take communion.

•Coffee time downstairs after worship is a great way to meet others.  Ask an usher or any parishioner for the way

You will  see a variety of attire, from blue jeans to coats and ties.  Come as you are. We'll be glad to see you.

What do I do during the offering?

Please do not feel pressured to give monetarily.  Your gift to us is you joining us for worship.


Where do I get more information?

Please stop by our visitor center at the back of the sanctuary. Here you will find name tags and information about child care and Sunday School.  Also, we would appreciate learning how best to contact you about your visit with us.


What's next?

Ypsi First offers a new member class several times a year.  The topics discussed in this class are: “What does it mean to be Christian?”; “Who was John Wesley?” and “What is this church’s vision?” and “Who am I and where do I fit in?"

This is a chance to become acquainted with Ypsi First and to get to know other new members.

For more information, you can reach us via our Contact Us page or speak to Pastor Cori.


We invite you to join us as we journey in faith together.
