GREETINGS 

Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Colleyville! It is our joy to welcome you, and we are glad you are interested in learning more about our church. Our mission at First UMC Colleyville is to “Engage, Connect, Grow, and Serve.” We hope to help everyone engage with a community, connect to God, grow in their faith, and be equipped to serve others in the local community and world. We are here to help you grow closer to God, no matter where you are on your faith journey.

Below you will find general information about our church and United Methodist beliefs. If you have any additional questions, please contact one of our pastors, Pastor Mike or Pastor Katie.



WHAT TO EXPECT

General Information

We currently offer two traditional Sunday morning worship services at 8:30 and 11 a.m. A contemporary worship service is also offered at 11:11 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

Dress for church is a little more traditional at the 8:30  and 11:00 a.m. services than at the 11:11 a.m. contemporary service, but you will see a wide range of attire. Our best advice is to come dressed comfortably. We think you will fit in, no matter what you wear.

Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month with a few exceptions during the year. We believe in an open Communion Table so all are welcome whether or not you are a United Methodist or member of the church.

Sunday School is from 9:45-10:45 and there are classes for all ages. Coffee and donuts are available in the Event Center and in the Narthex outside the Sanctuary. Before and after Sunday school is a wonderful time to connect with the pastors and other worship attenders. Check our electronic display boards in our main gathering areas that highlight current and coming events.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Does The United Methodist Church accept the baptism of other denominations?

Yes, The United Methodist Church recognizes the baptism of other Christian denominations. We do not rebaptize those who have already received Christian baptism in any form.

The Book of Discipline says, “A member in good standing in any Christian denomination who has been baptized and who desires to unite with The United Methodist Church may be received as either a baptized or a professing member by a proper certificate of transfer from that person’s former church, or by a declaration of Christian faith, and upon affirming willingness to be loyal to The United Methodist Church; It is recommended that instruction in the faith, work, and polity of the Church be provided for all such persons.”

What do I do when I Get There?

If you are visiting us for the first time, look for our Hosts. Our Hosts are stationed inside most of the doors to the church facility. No matter where you park, you can go inside the nearest door and a Host will direct you to either Sunday School, the Events Center, or the Sanctuary. Traditional services are held in the sanctuary, and contemporary services are held in the Events Center.
