About us


Welcome to the First United Methodist Church of Waco. I'm thrilled you're checking out our web-site and hope you find the information helpful.

Steve Ramsdell In these days of trying to maximize life, many of us sense the need for fresh start. We add activities, join new clubs, go to new places, meet new people and yet there is still an inner hunger that goes unfilled. I am firmly convinced that Jesus Christ is the one who fills that inner hunger and maximizes life!

First United Methodist Church of Waco has been a great place for my wife, Susan, and me to raise our family. First Methodist provides a relevant setting for worship with both contemporary and traditional worship. Our weekend service times are Saturday evening 5:30 contemporary worship; Sunday morning 8:15 traditional, 9:30 contemporary and 10:50 traditional. The music in all of weekend worship opportunities is upbeat; education, recreation, and fellowship are offered for both followers of Christ and those contemplating the Christian life. It is our heartfelt desire to make you feel welcome here!

First United Methodist Church of Waco is the oldest congregation in Waco with a 160-year history. We've just completed a three and a half million dollar expansion of our facilities that we hope will allow us to minister more effectively than ever.

I'd like to invite you to worship with us in one of our weekend services as we celebrate together God's promise of a fresh start in Him.

Senior Pastor, Stephen Ramsdell
