First United Methodist Church of El Dorado exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by changing lives, developing leaders, and sharing Christ. To us, being a disciple means following Jesus by engaging in spiritual practices to worship, grow, give, serve and share. These five characteristics make up our discipleship pathway; following are a list of opportunities associated with our pathway to help each individual continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
