We're easy to find, and we've taken the hassle (and cost) out of Uptown parking.


The church is located at 501 North Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte. 



We recommend using the parking garage on 9th Street between Tryon and Church Streets. It's free for church members and visitors. Take a ticket when entering the garage. You won't need it to get out on Sunday; the arm will be up. During the week, bring the ticket inside and have a church staff member validate it for you.

Once inside the garage, you'll see two elevators with signs for First United Methodist Church. For our 9:00 a.m. service in the Education Building, take the elevator on your right with the sign that says "Church Offices." For our 11:00 a.m. service in the sanctuary, use the elevator on your left. It'll take you right to the sanctuary; you never have to even step outside, perfect for days when there's bad weather. Most Sundays you'll find volunteers in the garage to help you get where you're going.
