    A Brief History

    The First United Methodist Church of Riverside was founded in 1872, just the second church to open in Riverside. The church recently celebrated its 150th anniversary. A fire in 1947 devastated the original sanctuary, located near the Mission Inn. The congregation raised funds for a large concrete sanctuary at 4845 Brockton Avenue and during the 50s and 60s built that as well as a Fellowship Hall, an Education building with a preschool, an office, and a Scout House. Today the church is home to music groups, community service projects, social activities for children, youth and adults and inspiring worship services. Come be part of our future.
