At First United Methodist Church of Temple, we understand that our worship of God together is central to our faith, discipleship, and transformation. Each Sunday we offer three worship gatherings; two traditional and one contemporary. When we gather together as the Body of Christ, the sum is much greater than the parts. We welcome the whole family to participate in worship together, where the sounds of children are evidence of God's great creation. Holy Communion is given the first Sunday of each month, & open to all.  


Traditional Worship | 8:30 a.m. & 11:00 a.m.
Located in the Sanctuary

First United Methodist Church of Temple has always been known for beautiful, traditional worship in our historic and artistic sanctuary crafted in 1914. Classic Methodist worship liturgy combined with relevant preaching and a talented choir backed by an amazing pipe organ makes for a memorable Sunday experience in God's presence. Please join us for traditional worship at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. every Sunday morning.
