First United Methodist Church of New Port Richey

Pastor's Welcome

Pastor David on Sunday morning

I'm a Florida cracker, born and raised in Polk county.  I'm happy to call my original home Fort Meade.  I'm married to Mary Soka Carefoot.  We've been partners in life and ministry for 39 years.  We've lived and worked in many places, but were happy when God's call brought us to New Port Richey in 2017.

Our church has been serving the New Port Richey area for over one hundred years.  Our church provides a warm welcome with opportunities for spiritual growth,and service.  We seek to live by the inspiration that God alone supplies.  Our vision is drawing near to God and to one another as we learn to love Christ and follow his way.  In all that we do, we want to experience the fullness of life that is God's ultimate gift.  We seek to serve the community, especially those in greatest need.  No matter who you are or where you are from, there is a home for you here.
