Hawkins First United Methodist Church stands on property that was gifted to our founding Methodist community in 1885. Through the good times and bad this church and its faithful have remained a committed part of the Hawkins and southeast Wood County community. Today Hawkins F.U.M.C. remains a vibrant community of faithful followers of Jesus the Christ. We hold firmly to our denomination stand to be the people of "Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors." For our community this means that whoever you are, where ever you have come from, regardless of what you do or do not know of God, you are welcome here. We invite you to join all of us as pilgrims on the journey of a lifetime.
The leadership of Hawkins First United Methodist Church has made the decision to begin to re-open for worship. To support the necessity of continued social distancing we will be conduction two services, 8:30 and 10:00 to spread the community. Due to limited seating we are requiring that members and visitors call the church office [903.769.2973] to determine available seating at either service. Masking for all is required. No handshaking or hugging please. Please avoid congregating anywhere that prevents others from passing safely. Upon arrival please follow the instruction of ushers.
All HFUMC worship is live streamed on our Facebook page.
Maybe if we could all live in the confines of a monastery or church we could reach a point at which the whole of our Christian life was easy, comfortable. But we don't we live lives of engagement, with friends and family and co-workers. We work, we socialize, we travel. We watch movies and television. We see and hear things that generations before might never have thought of. Then there are those other Christians who live lives very different from our own. In short we lives lives in the world and the world touches us and our thinking. Often we find cause to question ourselves. It would seem then, our faith, the way in which we understand and actualize our walk with Jesus can frequently makes us uncomfortable. Maybe being uncomfortable is a good thing, let's think and talk about that. If you join us on-line a worship guide can be found HERE.
Our community time on Sunday mornings, due to COVID, is confined to worship at this time. In keeping with our historical Wesleyan and United Methodist traditions we remain focused on making disciples of Jesus, which begins in gathering. Though all are welcome, we are working within the constraints of our facility and concern for the health of everyone. Please contact the church office for details and to determine if space is available for the scheduled service
