Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Murphy, where God's presence is both experienced and expressed! Nestled in the scenic Appalachian Mountains, we are a family of Christians that includes many local families as well as folks from across the US, Europe, and the South Sea Islands.

We invite you to 'get to know us' through our website and perhaps come and worship with us. Who knows? This may be just the place you've been looking for, a place of worship, acceptance, and service that God has prepared just for you!
We are located in the heart of beautiful downtown Murphy, North Carolina at 73 Valley River Avenue in the "steep curve." We look forward to welcoming you!
Our telephone number is 828-837-2718, FAX 828-837-9735. Sunday School meets at 9:45 with Worship at 11:00 a.m.
