Hawkins First United Methodist Church

"A Heart For Hawkins in the Heart of Hawkins"

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.

Sunday Mornings

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.

"After Sunrise"

Sermon Series - Apr. 28 to Jun. 9

What comes after sunrise?  After Easter, after sunrise services, after worship, after resurrection, what comes next?  Over the course of a lifetime we all have these moments.  Some "mountain top" experience like marriage or childbirth comes to us.  We think about it a lot.  We prepare, possibly to much.  We pour ourselves out getting ready and then the moment arrives.  And then the moment passes.  Now what?  Now that Easter has come and gone, what now?  What should I expect?  What should I be doing?  For the next seven Sundays we will follow the Common Lectionary through John's gospel and begin to answer our what now, what next question.  Join us!
