FUMC is a diverse congregation that provides multiple opportunities to encounter God, meet Jesus Christ our risen savior, and experience the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. As a United Methodist Church we are connected through our Central Texas Conference. Along with our weekly and local ministries, this connection provides opportunities for service, spiritual growth, and leadership development across our region.
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Join us in worship, Sunday school, fellowship, bible study, youth & children's events, and missions to serve our community and world.
