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 [Blue Seating] and 10:00 [Green Seating] 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.
In the Church the season of Advent has arrived, in the world the Christmas season is here with all its trappings and excess. In either case all to often 'season' seems to be part of the enduring problem. We behave as if all that is wrapped up in the birth of Jesus our Christ comes for a few short weeks and is then gone. A season. Maybe more so this year it seem important that we slow down a bit to really ponder what is happening in Advent and Christmas. Maybe we should focus our attention on Hope which seems to be for some, in short supply these days. Hope is absolutely a big part of the what we find as part of Christmas, but still hope is more. So let's spend the next four Sundays and Christmas Eve pondering a bit more methodically hope. 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
