Announcement from the SPRC Committee

The Staff Parish Relations Committee of First United Methodist Church, Shamokin, Pa. is happy to announce the appointment of Rev. Alicia Juliã-Stanley as our new pastor effective July 1, 2020.  Pastor Alicia and her family will be moving into our parsonage at the end of June . Bishop Peggy Johnson and her Cabinet are committed to our ministry, especially to the community, by appointing Pastor Alicia.  She states her mission statement is to be a “bridge builder” and she specializes in extending the church outside of the church building into the community.  We look forward to this next chapter and new leadership in the life of our church.



First UMC is a church focused on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Bible as the Word of God. We are a church that welcomes all people, regardless of age, ethnicity, or gender. We are a safe place for people to come, worship and spend time together. We love this community and are striving to make it a better and more beautiful place to live each day.  Join us as we travel through life, loving God and one another.
