Message from the Pastor

Welcome

You are welcome at First United Methodist Church in Irving. We look forward to visiting and worshiping with you.

Make plans to participate in worship celebration on Sunday morning at 10:30 am.  The dress is casual. You will find visitor and handicap parking spaces in the south and west side parking lots. You may enter through the circular glass doors on the south side or the double glass doors on the west side of the sanctuary building through the colonnade. There will be a team member at the doors to welcome you! We have sanitized hearing assistance devices for those in need.

We also have on-line versions of our 10:30 am Sunday morning worship. You can watch in an on-line community setting on Facebook or watch on YouTube. The easiest way to access is to go to the top of our homepage (www.fumcirving.org) and click on one of the on-line links.

Weather permitting, we are also conducting outdoor Drive-in worship services at 8:00 am Sundays on our South Parking Lot. You can stay in your car and listen to our radio broadcast or bring a chair to listen to our live sound.

Normally we have multiple Sunday School classes for all ages begins at 9:15 am. We are currently not having Sunday School due to the Covid pandemic.

Our nursery is not open due to the Covid pandemic. A safe “cry room” is available in our Sanctuary, although children of all ages are always welcome in our worship services. Normally we offer childcare during all worship services and the Sunday school hour for infants, crawlers and toddlers. There are pagers for all parents.

The church has a mission of “making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world,” and this is accomplished by the vision of being “a bright beacon of God’s love to Irving and beyond.” So, our outreach and service that is to the community, congregation and beyond, provides many opportunities of service in Christ.

Come experience the love of God in fellowship together. Come be a part of a dynamic and loving family of believers. May we grow in our faith, love and service together.

Grace and peace,

Rev. Dr. Doug Fox
Senior Pastor
