First UMC in Falfurrias was founded in 1904 by Rev. C.W. Perkins. After meeting in temporary locations such as the railroad depot and the school house, the first building was erected in 1906. After sustaining hurricane damage in 1916 and 1919, and after a remodeling in 1935, the current structure was built on 1950.
The needs of our community seem to be growing by the day, and we have recently expanded to meet these needs. Over the years, we have learned that what people sometimes need the most is someone who will listen to their concerns - someone they can turn to for support when the going gets tough. And that's what First United Methodist Church is all about.
After humble beginnings in 1910, in 1956, First UMC Premont erected the beautiful sanctuary you see today. Although the town has been hit hard by economic woes in recent years, First UMC Premont is determined to continue its wonderful legacy and provide a beautiful place for members and visitors to worship.
