8:30, 9:45, and 11:00 a.m.
Hillside Fellowship Hall
At First UMC, God is worshipped through singing, prayer, and hearing God’s word preached. We do not preach our own wisdom, but the wisdom that comes from God, as revealed in the Bible, trusting its authority and power to change our lives and allow us to see the beauty and love of God more clearly. Come expecting to meet with God alongside a loving and welcoming community!
The contemporary worship band is a talented group of musicians who treasure joyfully worshipping God through song in an upbeat manner. Biblical preaching is brought by Rev. Logan Talamas. The service features congregational singing, and plenty of space for children.
Traditional Worship (8:30 and 11:00):
The traditional services feature congregational singing, piano, organ, and instrumental music. Our singing of hymns is led by Dr. David Baker, along with a choir full of rich voices. We are blessed to have Dr. Sabrina Adrian, a marvelous organist who also leads in this service. The proclamation of the word is brought by our Senior Pastor, Rev. Ryan Barnett, a man filled with love for God, the Bible, his family, and the Hill Country community. The historic liturgy of the church guides our corporate prayers and directs our worship experience.
9:45 Worship Service:
This highly participatory service is located in the sanctuary. It features weekly communion, a talented ensemble of singers, and Biblical preaching.
Wednesday Communion Service
This 30-minute weekly service includes hymns, a brief sermon, and communion. The service ends with a time of private prayer, and all are welcome to stay in prayer as long as they would like.
In all our services:
Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. Baptism can be celebrated at any service, but we encourage you to speak with a pastor about scheduling the sacred moment. Associate Pastors Dr. Donna Magee, Rev. Max Perez, and Rev. Phillip Hoeflinger rotate through services, providing spiritual leadership for the entire church.
Kids, What to Bring, and Where to Park:
You certainly do not need to bring anything to the worship service, but if you have a Bible, we encourage you to take it with you. We offer a professionally staffed nursery available in the Education Building where kids age 3 and under are nurtured and cared for, however, we love to see children of all ages in our worship services as well. We also have Sunday School classes for people of all ages. Information about Sunday School times and locations can be found under the "Get Connected" tab on our home page. Dress is typically more casual.
