Topeka First
United Methodist Church



Topeka First United Methodist Church seeks to be a community of Jesus followers who connect, grow, and serve for the good of the city. We have been at the heart of downtown Topeka for over 160 years. Through all that time, we have sought to be a place where positive transformation occurs. If you are looking for a spiritual home in which you will be empowered to connect, grow, and serve, there is a place for you here. 

What We Do


We worship together to connect with God and our community.


We engage in group life to grow in our relationships with God and others.


We serve God and Topeka through our gifts, our talents, and our story.

For the Good of the City

We do all things focused on how we can build a better community together.

As a community of Jesus followers, we work to live our lives in such a way that all who see us may want to know our God. To learn more about how we live as faithful followers, click below.
