Thanks for visiting our website!  Tifton First is a fantastic church, full of great people.  We’d love to have you join us for worship or any of the many opportunities for discipleship, fellowship, service, or missions.  Look around the site and get a small glimpse of what we have going on.  If you’d like to join us personally, we’d love to have you.  With our three worship services, we are still one church, and we have a place that you can fit in and grow.  In the coming months, we hope to be live streaming our worship services, but for now, you can check them out here, or on our Facebook page, if you can’t join us in person.  If there’s anything we can do to help you get connected, don’t hesitate to contact me, by clicking on the link below.

Chip Grantham, Senior Pastor

Special Notice

Tifton First UMC’s Worship Services and Activities Suspended Until Further Notice.

At the recommendation of the District Superintendent and the strong urgings of members of the local healthcare community, Tifton First made the difficult decision to suspend worship and church-related activities beginning March 15th, and going until further notice.  This has been a very difficult decision, and something that we still have strong reservations in making, but we know that the group that is most at-risk are our members who are going to be here if the door is open, and they are able.


We are working on options for ongoing opportunities for worship and gathering – online, conference calling, etc.  Unfortunately we were too late making the decision to cancel on the 15th to have that as an option on that day. 

In the interim, if you need us, don’t hesitate to call Chip or Robby.  We hope to be maintaining somewhat regular office hours, depending on what the authorities tell us.

Please be in prayer for those affected, those at risk, and those who need comfort.  Know that we serve the Lord Jesus Christ, who purchased our salvation and healing, and the One who brings us Peace!
