Welcome to First

Important Worship Update: We’ve reopened the sanctuary to in-person worship. We still wear masks and practice social distancing, but we no longer take temperatures or confirm attendance (reservations). There are two in-person worship opportunities. One service will be on Saturday morning. The second service will be at 10:30 on Sunday Morning.

If we have enough interest in an 8:15 Sunday morning service, we can start one. We’re adding the Saturday service so that it can be recorded, processed, and uploaded to Vimeo and Facebook by the following day (Sunday). This same service will be aired in our 10:30 Sunday slot on KABI. 

You can watch the Saturday morning worship service here: abilenefirstumc.org/onlineworship.

“ALL GUESTS who present themselves are to be welcomed as CHRIST.”
— Benedict of Nursia

Welcome! Aligning ourselves with the biblical witness, First United Methodist Church affirms Jesus’ example of inviting all people into God’s loving embrace. We believe that the diversity of our community enriches our journey together in faith. All people (and all means all) are welcome to join in our life together as we strive to live as a profoundly Christ-like church of open hearts, open minds, and open doors and work for the coming kingdom of God.

We worship at 8:15 and 10:30 every Sunday morning in a “blended” style. There are Christian Education opportunities for all ages at 9:30.
