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.
There are a great many names in the bible, particularly in the Old Testament, that we struggle to pronounce. Sadly some of those are attached to books of the bible. Within the Old Testament there are twelve books that are the work of men referred to as the Minor Prophets. With the exception of Jonah they are names rarely heard in conversation around the church. But these are the prophets of God and should not be ignored simply because the contribution to the whole biblical canon is "minor." We will therefore take a listening journey to hear from all of them and reflect on their prophetic voice in the context of our own time. 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 at one of the scheduled service
