First United Methodist Church
Thursday, May 24, 2018


     Welcome to the First United Methodist Church of Goliad! We are a multi-generational congregation committed to sharing the love of God in word and deed as we strive by God’s grace to become more and more like Jesus Christ. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. This means we exist, not for ourselves, but for the healing of the world starting right here in Goliad County since 1840!
     In order to accomplish our mission, we must be in community with others who will nurture and challenge us to grow in faith, hope, and love. Two regular opportunities that form us into disciples are Sunday School and worship. You can read more about these by clicking on their corresponding tabs. Service is also crucial for a life of discipleship and we are continually working to discover and engage with and for our community in humble, intentional service.
     Wherever you are in your journey of faith. Whether you are asking questions and searching, whether you are just beginning a life of discipleship, or have been following Christ for years, you are welcome and there’s a place for you within our community! We need you and you need us, so come join us in a life of discipleship so that we can make even a greater difference in our world together through the power of God’s Spirit. Together, we will strive to do no harm, do good, and stay in love with God!
