our story

As time has marched on, our church has grown and so has our city. We're glad to be a part of the rich spiritual fabric of our community, and proud of our connection to the cities earliest history. The ageless nature of the Gospel message allows us to be Sebring's first church and still exist in our ever-changing setting of Highlands county.

When George Sebring founded what would become the city on the circle in 1912, he knew that the small village would grow as folks from all walks of life looked to make their new home in the warmth of central Florida. In order to meet the spiritual needs of a growing community, the founder helped establish First United Methodist as Sebring's first congregation.
