Celebrate the Christmas Season with Faith United Methodist Church

‘Tis the season for making those lists and checking them twice, but how much on that list truly adds to a life? Preparations are made and calendars are filled as waiting and expectations begin to build. At the mere mention of Christmas, memories, thoughts and emotions come to mind. Which are the ones you are hoping to find?

This December, Faith United Methodist Church will wait and expect the One to be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. One of such importance and stature surely would arrive with great nobility and fanfare.

But from the very start, Jesus was the complete embodiment of humility and accessibility. For on that day a little over 2,000 years ago, rather than in a palace amidst royalty, love came gently to a lowly girl and her betrothed in a Bethlehem stable, because this gift is meant for all. So all are invited to simply come, unwrap and receive the best of all gifts: hope, peace, love and joy. Gather each Sunday with Faith United Methodist Church to celebrate the story of how the birth and coming of this King can shape and shield the story of lives.

Located at 4600 FM 359, just west of Pecan Grove in Richmond, Faith United Methodist is a place to belong and to strengthen and share beliefs in order to be a blessing beyond the church walls. Sunday worship times are 8:30 am for the Table in the Chapel with communion, 9 am for the Traditional Service in the Worship Center, 10 am for the Branch in the Chapel and 11 am for the Vine in the Worship Center. The nursery is available for birth through Pre-K.
