So it is with Christ’s body, we are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. Christ offers us all the opportunity to be in relationship with Him and offers us a chance to be in community with one another as we walk down life’s path. Here at First UMC Yukon, we offer multiple ministries where we can come together and dive into God’s word, discern God’s call, reflect the light of Christ, and transform the world TOGETHER!!!
Here at Yukon First we have a wide range of long and short-term Bible studies, each creating a space where you can come together in a Christ-centered community and dive into God’s word. A place where you can ask questions, discuss experiences, and discern the call God has on your life. We invite you to come join a Wednesday night group that fits you.

Over the years, Yukon First has created a lasting relationship with the people of Rio Bravo, Mexico. This relationship has lasted over 10 years! At least once a year, we travel down and lend a hand with various construction and community ministries. Being in community with each other, over the years, we have found both groups are impacted in amazing ways. Feel free to join us as we continue to walk together as God’s people.
Each Fall for the past few years, Yukon First has sent a mission team to Sunflower, MS. The team has worked with Delta Grace to build ramps and repair homes for low-income people. It is a great experience the builds community among the team members and the people we help. There always a place for people interested in serving on this team.
Our ramps group is a team of people who travel locally and nationally to provide those struggling with mobility and independence the opportunity to move with more ease. Building handicap-accessible ramps for homeowners helps them get where they need to go.
