About FUMC Irving

WHO WE ARE
First United Methodist Church Irving

FUMC Irving was founded in Irving, Texas in 1908. The church grew with the town. By 1920 the town of Irving had a population of 397 and the church had 257 members. Shortly after WWI the church raised funds for a new church bell and that same bell has been ringing for 90 years!

Today FUMC Irving provides Parents Day Out two day per week and Vacation Bible School to the whole community. The church stepped up volunteer and food collection for Irving Cares and is now the site of a once per week evening meal for needy and homeless persons and participates as part of Family Promise, serving homeless families in our community. Our children’s program is growing and is a vibrant and important part of our church. Additionally, Mission Outreach has been a very important part of the service of First Methodist Irving and International mission teams have been sent out for the last 10 years.
