What To Expect

When you come to First UMC/Mathis, expect to be greeted by friendly faces and helpful spirits. We host a Meet & Greet coffee & snack time at 10:30 immediarely after Sunday school prior to worship in the rear of the Sanctuary area. We have a great congregation with a great spirit. Be prepared to be greeted, accepted and offered the hand of Christian fellowship. 

We have a small elevator available for those with mobility challenges on Duval St. Restrooms are located downstairs in the Fellowship Hall. A baby changing table is inside the Upper Room off the Sanctuary. Children's worship bags are stocked with crayons and coloring pages.
You'll notice Teddy Bears sitting in the pews. We bless those bears and share them with sick ort others in need of prayer.
At 11:00 announcements about our shared life are made, and then a musical selcetion is played to help us focus for worship. Typical worship follows the pattern of Gathering, for Praise, Hearing God's Word, Responding to the Word, and Preparing to Serve. Bulletins are provided to help guide evryone through readings, prayers and the songs for the day.  We have a Children's Sermon time with the pastor, and then younger children may go to our nursery where volunteers will engage them in play to reinforce Bible stories. We observe the Lord's Supper each 1st and 3rd Sunday, and all Christians are invited to participate. We usually close worship affirming our mission together.
