Hello! We're young, we're old. We're far from perfect and still learning to live more like Jesus. We believe the Lord has brought us together to be more and do more than we can alone. We'd love to share everything we know with you. Together, we can better understand the love Christ has for us and what it means to live the Christian life.

Our doors are open to all who have questions about their direction and reasons in life, those who are seeking Christ and need help, those who know nothing about Christianity, those who know they need something more than they have now, ANYONE! Come as you are! We invite you to come to our worship and learn the word of God.



FUMCSB supports local efforts such as the San Benito Food Pantry and the In His Steps program that gives new shoes to schoolchildren. We are the charter and home of Boy Scout Troop 25 and pack 255. Our English as a Second Language, ESL, classes have been going strong for over 5 years. FUMCSB also regularly gives to many local charities and organizations in the community.

On a national and global level, FUMCSB gives to UMCOR that supports endeavors around the world including fighting hunger and poverty, catastrophic natural disaster relief, and advocate programs for education, business, and healthy living.

We take tithes and offerings every Sunday. Once a month we have Special Offerings that benefit a chosen ministry or program. 100% of all donations are forwarded to the chosen group.
