Welcome to

First United Methodist Church Mt. Vernon TX

While the Family Life Center is being restored, all services and activities are being held in the main building.

Our Mission is Helping Others Follow Jesus 

We are all about being and making disciples. It’s not one or the other… it’s both for us. We believe that following Jesus is the key to life here and now, and eternally. We follow Jesus, but we are actively seeking to help others follow Him by: 

  • … teaching the importance of Scripture and its traditions,
  • … creating relationships and community throughout many life stages,
  • … providing opportunities for dedicated giving and serving, 
  • … sharing how Jesus can provide direction and purpose in life, and
  • … giving hope for real transformation.

So remember: be a disciple and make disciples.
