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.
Our community time on Sunday mornings is built around small groups and worship. In keeping with our historical Wesleyan and United Methodist traditions we are a focused on making disciples of Jesus, which begins in gathering. All are welcome. Our community is comprised of individuals and families from many faith traditions and those with no tradition. Yet, together we are in agreement in our choice to be followers of Jesus wherever he leads. We invite you to come and check us out, ask your questions, and make yourselves at home.

As summer gives way to fall, October and November, we see signs of the end of the growing seasons and the coming of Harvest time. In rural communities like ours it is not hard to see. But still, do we really appreciate as our forefathers the meaning of harvest? Do we understand just how powerful an idea it was for the people of Isreal and the bible? For those of us not farming or gardening do we consider how vital farmers and harvest are to our daily lives? Do we remember that God promised us harvest and calls us all to the harvest field? Why?
