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.
In Matthews Gospel we find the fullest account of a group of the teachings of Jesus that is most often referred to as the "Sermon on the Mount." But since this teaching reflects the heart of Jesus, the heart of God, the argument has been made that it might be better understood as the "Discourse on Discipleship." Jesus gathers close to himself, on that mountain, his disciples and he teaches them. As the present disciples of Jesus we too should go to the mountain, frequently, and listen closely to this authoritative teaching. Each week we will take another step in this journey, you may find those details on out Facebook page by clicking here.
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.
