Welcome to the website for First United Methodist Churches in Falfurrias, TX and Premont, TX. These two churches have a long history of providing a place of worship in, and serving, their communities. We WELCOME EVERYONE to come worship with us! Nothing thrills us more than to greet a visitor or a newcomer in the name of Jesus Christ. If you are looking for a place to worship, we hope you will consider visiting us!
Worship at both churches is informal. Falfurrias UMC offers a blend of traditional, contemporary and bilingual elements, whereas Premont UMC is a traditional worship service.
We think you will find both congregations to be warm, welcoming and loving!
Welcome to the Official Website of First United Methodist Churches of Premont and Falfurrias!
My name is Rev Lon Scott and I was appointed as pastor of First UMC in Falfurrias in January of 2018 and First UMC of Premont in July 2019. My wife, Deana, and I have both enjoyed getting to know the communities of Falfurrias and Premont, their people and especially you, my brothers and sisters in Christ. I can tell you based on first hand experience with these are two loving congregations and that if you are searching for a place to worship that is warm, inviting and welcoming to all...then I hope that you will visit us at FUMC in Falfurrias or Premont. I think you will find our worship services to be relaxed, personable and spiritually rewarding!.
My wife Deana and I are excited to be a part of our two new church families and look forward to getting to know each of you better!
Blessings and Grace Always,
Pastor's Update - April 30, 2020
God's Blessings and Grace to each of you. We all have much to be thankful for these days despite all the worry, struggle and loss that we are emerging from as the result of the Corona Virus Pandemic. There has certainly been a cloud hanging over our heads these past many weeks but the storm is passing. Perhaps not as fast as we might wish, but it is passing. One of the bothersome things to me over the course of these past months has been the Church closings that were mandated by our State and Local government officials. I completely understand how important it has been to stay away from public gatherings but I have missed church greatly. What a blessing it will be to meet again in worship this coming Sunday May 3, 2020. Of course we will adhere to all the "Stop the Spread Rules" regarding hugging, handshaking, personal safe space, face masks etc but to be able to gather again in community, and give praise and thanks to our awesome God is going to be wonderful.
Be Safe...and I hope to see you Sunday :)
Keep the Faith,
Psalm 56:3-4a Revised Standard Version (RSV) 3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in thee. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust without a fear.
