WELCOME TO FIRST CHURCH!
We’re a congregation that is inclusive and affirming of all as beloved children of God,
and that includes you!
The 2024 Lenten Season begins with our Ash Wednesday Service at 6pm February 14
Lent gives us a chance to peel back the layers and get to the heart of what matters most. This year, we’ll walk these 40 days with Jesus who showed us we don’t have to come before God perfectly. God just asks us to show up authentically as our whole selves.
During this season, we’ll have an opportunity to set aside “the carefully curated life” we often like to project to the world and instead, we’ll embrace what’s real. We’ll meet Jesus in the messiness of our lives and recognize that God is right here with us.
All are welcome here!
At First United Methodist Church of Mesquite you'll find us to be a people who are open and affirming of all because we believe that each and all of us are precious children of God... and that includes YOU!
We seek to share the fullness of life that comes when we center our lives around the abundant grace of God poured out for all.
Our diverse community is made up of real people, facing real life issues, experiencing real love in Jesus Christ.
As children, youth and adults, we express our shared faith in numerous ways:
with traditional hymns & contemporary praise songs
Invigorating Bible Studies
including Sunday School for all ages
events open to every generation
A Place of Healing and Hope
through our missions and outreach with and for our surrounding community
If you’re seeking a place of authenticity – where “Real Life” and “Real Faith” unite – then come and visit. We’ll be here... saving a seat for you!
Peace be with you,
Rev. Wally Butts
