We care about our church community and each other. Please join our virtual opportunities below to stay connected to FUMC. We are a church family, more than a building. We hope to see you online with us!
Weekdays at 10:30 a.m.
During the week, Monday-Friday at 10:30 a.m. on our Preschool Facebook site, we are offering a time for families to come together for story time, singing, and fellowship. On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, preschool teachers lead a circle time for children. On Wednesdays, Lara Greene, Director of Children’s Ministries, leads a chapel time of story, song, and prayer. Tune in at 10:30 a.m. on weekdays at facebook.com/FUMPATX.
Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m. (Begins April 1)
A simple, low-key time to gather with FUMC family to check in and pray for one another and our world. No frills, no program, just people and the Holy Spirit! We’ll gather from 7:30 to 8:00 p.m. each Wednesday night. Join on Zoom.
Wednesdays, Timing TBD
We’ll be having a weekly opportunity for fellowship and study. This will look like our usual Youth Sunday School hour. Contact Devon Bailey, Director of Youth Ministries, at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link or check Youth Updates emails.
Pastor’s Bible Study
Thursdays, 1:30 p.m. (Begins April 2)
Join Pastor Taylor for an informal study of the Book of Philippians on Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. beginning on April 2 via Zoom. We’ll work our way through the book one chapter at a time, considering the context in which it was first read and the context in which we read it today. Together, we’ll listen for God’s word in the midst of unusual circumstances. Zoom links are provided after registration and included in our your weekly eNews. Register Here.
Youth Christ Candle
Fridays, 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
Each Friday, we’ll be doing a weekly catch up and Christ Candle. Youth are invited to log in, share a high and a low. This week we asked all youth to find a fun item from home that has a good story. Maybe a favorite possession or something you got on a memorable trip! Don’t forget a candle! Contact Devon Bailey, Director of Youth Ministries, at email@example.com for the Zoom link or check Youth Updates emails.

Interactive Time of Prayer on Zoom

Join 45 minutes early to chat with our church family.
With the “Stay Home – Work Safe” Order issued by Mayor Adler on Tuesday, FUMC will adjust our worship offerings to enable worship leaders to stay home. We are shifting to the ZOOM platform that many of you have already been using for classes and meetings. We understand that some people will need help to get Zoom up and running, and we are here to help. Feedback from other churches who have moved to this model is very positive, and we have positive reviews of large-scale zoom meetings with over 200 participants. This platform will enable us to stay home while still having multiple worship leaders, and—bonus!—everyone will have the opportunity to see other worshippers, not just the pastors. (If you don’t want to be seen, you don’t have to!) We are excited for this change and we hope you are, too. Plan to join your church family on Sunday for Music, Greeting time, Announcements, Scripture, and a Time for Prayer. Zoom links are provided after registration and included in our your weekly eNews. Zoom links will stay the same each week. Register Here.
Expanded Virtual Worship Podcast
Available on Sunday Mornings by 8:00 a.m.
After you join us for the live portion of worship, we invite you to continue by listening to this audio worship podcast. Grab a candle and light it, and turn in your Bible. This week includes a greeting and opening prayer, Scripture reading, sermon, and music from Scott Davis and our choral scholars. This component is available at any time—just click the link. Feel free to share with friends and family as you feel led. The sermon link will be emailed Sunday morning and posted on our website, iTunes podcast, and YouTube Channel.
Sundays at 5:00 p.m.
Adults ages 20-45, join us weekly to check in, share, and connect on Zoom! Until we can meet again in person, Dr. Brad King will host a weekly check-in on Sundays at 5:00 p.m. using Zoom. We’ll treat this time as a virtual happy hour. Bring a drink. Bring a story. Bring a friend. Let’s do our best to stay connected while we have to stay apart. Contact email@example.com with any questions. Zoom links are provided after registration and included in our your weekly eNews. Zoom links will stay the same each week. Register Here.
