First United Methodist Church of Dade City not only recognizes itself as a proud member of the local Christian community, but also as a proud community of members in fellowship with one another. We have many different community initiatives that we are proud to be a part of and many of our own initiatives that we are blessed to provide. Community is a paramount tenet of being a Christian.

Acts 2:42-47 Common English Bible (CEB)
42 The believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers. 43 A sense of awe came over everyone. God performed many wonders and signs through the apostles. 44 All the believers were united and shared everything. 45 They would sell pieces of property and possessions and distribute the proceeds to everyone who needed them. 46 Every day, they met together in the temple and ate in their homes. They shared food with gladness and simplicity. 47 They praised God and demonstrated God’s goodness to everyone. The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved.
