First UMC is a church committed to serving God though loving action with our neighbors here in San Marcos, in the greater Austin-San Antonio area, and out into the world.

The mission of First UMC
is to Go Forth with Love: to Gather, Grow, and Give!
Core Values
  • We are a Christ-centered fellowship, which invites people to experience a life- changing relationship with Jesus Christ and become His disciples.
  • We are a diverse congregation, which values the worth of every individual; believing that God’s grace is present in and for all.
  • Through the Bible we encounter God’s living word, making Bible study essential to our formation as Christian disciples.
  • The stewardship of our time, our talents and our resources is a vital element in our spiritual growth.
  • Prayer is a means of grace through which we enter into a personal relationship to God through the Holy Spirit.
  • We endeavor to be a caring community of mutual support and accountability.
  • Every Christian is gifted and called by God to be in ministry.
  • We are called as servants to witness to God’s love for all people through missions.
  • The Christian life is one of a personal relationship with Christ through which we grow in grace and demonstrate God’s love in all our relationships.
  • In vital worship we encounter and honor God in Word and Sacrament - instilling hope, fostering healing and empowering discipleship.
Join us Sunday mornings on the journey of Christian discipleship!
