Scott Meador 

Senior Pastor

Welcome to our website.  I am blessed to serve as pastor of Carlsbad First United Methodist Church.  My wife Cindy and I share ministry together with the caring people of FUMC.  Our vision is to follow God’s leading to share the hope of Jesus in our community.  We would love to meet you and find ways to connect as we grow together in Christ.  Blessings to you!
