New Here?

First United Methodist Church is a church that believes in Jesus, a church that loves God and people.

Serve the Church

Our weekday and weekend gatherings take many people to make them work, from ushers
to greeters, youth and adult group leaders, care ministry workers and everywhere in-between.

Serve the Community

We seek and are committed to building
relationships and partnerships where we can work alongside the work God is already doing in our community.

Two prominent images come to mind when I think of FUMC Rockport, a lighthouse and windswept trees.   A Lighthouse functions to guide, caution, and rescue so that travelers can find safe passage.  Windswept trees are a testament to that which is weathered by life and found in a position of bowing in praise and thanksgiving to God.  FUMC Rockport is a community that seeks to be such a light that points all toward Christ even as we grow in our relationship with Christ.   We are a people of many backgrounds and appreciate the diversity that a port city brings to a community.   If you ask people why they have come to FUMC, you will hear: “It felt like home…warm, comfortable;” or, “I love that my kids have many adoptive grandparents;” or, “I find it a place to grow in my faith;” and, “I have so many dear friends in this place.”  These are core elements to creating a refuge for those seeking a people to belong, a people to claim as extended family, and a people to grow alongside in faith.  But be not mistaken, we understand that a port refuge is the refueling station that enables us to go out and serve our neighbors.  We would love to have you join us in the great adventure of worshiping and serving God.
