Ames First UMC is located in the heart of the historic downtown Ames neighborhood, located between 5th and 6th Street on Kellogg Avenue, across from the main branch of the US Post Office and one block north of Main Street and the downtown businesses.

We are currently asking everyone to enter on the south side of the building (facing 5th St.) which has the easiest access.

City parking is free on Sundays.  City paid parking is available all around the church area (meters are free after 6pm on weekdays and after 5pm on Saturdays).  There are a few limited parking options on the south side, especially handicapped parking.

Once inside the building, you will find offices, classrooms/community rooms, a chapel, and a social hall on the lower level.  The sanctuary and more classrooms and another large multi-purpose room are located on the second level.  There is a large elevator located near the south entrance.  The south entrance is handicap accessible.
