There is a correction to the copy of the letter that was emailed on March 31 and mailed via USPS to all members. The letter stated "...PA Governor Wolf has issued a “Shelter-in-Place” order for Schuylkill County..."; it should have read ...issued a "Stay-at-Home" order... . The attachment available through the link above has the correction as stated. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Welcome in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!


We're glad to have you come by to check out our web site. The First United Methodist Church of Schuylkill Haven is centrally located in Schuylkill County, on the west end of Schuylkill Haven. We are a Bible-believing congregation that loves the Lord and has a heart for missions. If we haven't had the opportunity of meeting you, we're eager to do so. We're excited to share with you the wonderful ways God is working in our church.


It won't take you long to discover that this is truly a family, rich in relationships. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and reach out to others with the life-transforming truth of Jesus Christ.


We'd love for you to come and worship with us! May the Lord richly bless you.


In Christ,

Rev. Dr. Chris Fisher
