Grand Prairie's First United Methodist Church has been on Center Street between Main and Church since October 1880. As old buildings were replaced by newer ones, our sanctuary has faced north; it has faced west; the 1925 building even faced the intersection of Church Street and Center. Our steeple (the first one was 18' high and the current one is 108' high) is a landmark in the heart of Grand Prairie--one that beckons all with "Open hearts, open minds and open doors."
As United Methodists, our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the good news of God's grace and to serve Him throughout the world. Here at First United Methodist Church, Grand Prairie, we have three Sunday Worship Services and a variety of opportunities for study, service and fellowship. We offer several classes for scripture study -- to learn about Christian action, giving, and discipline.
Our children's and youth programs involve more than 200 young people, guiding them in their development as Christians. We sponsor Boy Scout Troop 195 and Cub Scout Pack 195. The Center for Young Children also offers classes for preschoolers on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Our members put feet and hands on their faith within our church family, within the community in activities such as the Grand Prairie Food and Clothing Co-op and beyond Grand Prairie. Senior High youth participate in mission trips each summer. Our adult members have embarked on mssion trips as well.
