When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd.

Mark 6:34

About Rapid City First
We are a small church located in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota, called together as a community and sent out into our world as a response to our faith. Our roots began in 1877 when Reverend Hugh M. Jones, a pioneer preacher, regularly got together with  community members to lift up the needs of God’s people. Today, we seek to meet people right where they are, just as Jesus did. No matter where you are from or what you’re going through, there is a place for you at Rapid City First UMC.

We Give as a Community of Faith 

All that we have is a gift from God. Giving shows our response to God’s invitation to participate in His work in our community and in the world. Our faith journey together depends on the generosity of each other.  We give and receive, participate and contribute with our money, time, prayer and love.
