WE HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU
The most important things in life are the connections we make with others.
La Mesa First United Methodist Church is a place for all people to explore faith and make a difference in the community. You are invited to join us to learn more about our church community, our faith, and our ministries.
Pastor’s Bible Study
Join us and take a deeper look at the lessons from the Bible and our Christian faith. Each series lasts eight-weeks and will be dedicated to a specific topic.
Starting April 10th, we will begin a new series called A Disciple's Path. This 7-week study will focus on the core foundations of what it means to be a disciple in the Methodist Church.

Sunday Morning Book Group
The Sunday Morning Book Group is combining our love of reading and our love of movies with God in the Movies: A Guide for Exploring Four Decades of Film by Barsotti, Johnston & Winter
"Spirituality in movies? You bet! With their book God in the Movies, Catherine M. Barsottiand Robert K. Johnston present a host of insightful essays. Each gives us eyes to see the subtle but powerful nuggets of spiritual wisdom tucked into mainstream Hollywood films. You've seen most of these movies; now take a second look. You'll be amazed at what you'll find!"
