Welcome to First United Methodist Church Pearland!

From the moment you arrive on campus we hope you’ll feel at home. Volunteers in the parking lot, at the doors, and at the Welcome Center are available to help you get oriented.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions to help make your visit a pleasant experience.
What should I wear?
At First Methodist Pearland, we focus on the heart more than on the outward appearance. When you come to one of our services, you will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles - many as casual as jeans or shorts, and a smaller number dressed more formally. Most people find themselves somewhere in the middle. Just be sure to dress so that you will be relaxed and able to get the greatest possible impact from our service.
What about my kids?
Children may stay in worship with you if you wish. We encourage families to worship together. During all of our services we have a time especially designed for the children ages K-4th grade called PearlandKIDS Church (PKC)! Children are invited into a separate space where they have time for fellowship and an age appropriate lesson during the sermon. Children then return to the worship service for communion with their family or the final worship song.
PearlandKIDS child-care is available for ages birth through preschool during each service. At 9:30 am we have Sunday School for children grades K-12th.
Do you have communion?
We practice open communion. You do not need to be a member of First Methodist Pearland to participate. Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month in our Traditional services and every Sunday in our Celebration service. Gluten-free elements are available. Communion is also served after the 8:30 am Traditional service in the Sanctuary.
Am I welcome to try adult Sunday School classes? Do I just show up?
Yes! You are welcome to try any and all of our Sunday School Classes! Our classes meet from 9:30 – 10:30 am. Descriptions of the classes and their locations are available on the Sunday School page.
What if I need more information?
Have questions? Need information? The Welcome Center is located just outside the doors in the Sanctuary and in the Lobby of the Family Life Center and is a great resource for our members and guests alike. Staffed by a friendly and knowledgeable church member, this is the place to find brochures and information about church ministries, programs, and activities.
