Welcome to Holdrege First United Methodist Church. We are a vibrant church family living by faith, known by love, and a voice of hope reaching out as the hands of Jesus, nurturing ourselves, our community and beyond to know the Spirit of Christ.

This website is the open door for you to find out about us as a body of Christ.  Our goal is to bring ourselves and others into a closer walk with Jesus.  Our prayer is that this can become a reality through our welcoming worship, our challenging study groups, our relational age-groups, our servant mission work, and our spiritual commitment to our individual and corporate prayer lives.


Take the hand of Jesus and walk with Him daily

Journey to Jerusalem Escape Room

Gather your family and friends and try to  escape the temple room before you miss out on the parade in Jerusalem. We have designed the room with all ages in mind. Group size should be 4-8 persons. If you have any questions, contact Candance at (308) 995-8691. Can you and your team  solve all the puzzles to find your way out  of the room before you miss the parade?


April 14 – Palm Sunday 8:30 and 11:00 a.m.

As Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey, people waved palm branches and laid their cloaks on the ground as a sign of honor.  Bring your gently used coats/jackets to the Palm Sunday service to donate to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Prayer & Healing Service

Thursdays at 3:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary.

Come find a spot to be ‘alone’ with God. As you listen to the meditative music, turn your attention to what God is wanting you to hear.  This is a time for you to soak in God’s love for you. After a time of meditation, the group will suggest prayers for each other and persons on their hearts and minds.  Intercessory prayers for physical and emotional healing are offered. This time ends with a blessing extended to all participants.


We are currently collecting new and gently used bedding to donate to the Pine Ridge reservation.  If you have any sheet sets, blankets, or new pillows that you would like to donate, you can drop them off at the church during office hours.
