Friends, we’re in strange times since the advent of COVID-19.  Here at First UMC in Brenham, we’re continuing to stay in contact with each other and with our community in ways that are safe and helpful.  Please join us for online worship, study and connection.  Together we’ll discover new ways that God is touching our hearts and building the reign of God

Missions & Outreach

Our mission is to inspire all persons to respond with gifts and service to meet the needs of people both locally and globally, through the mission and outreach ministries of First United Methodist Church. Mission service and outreach to others is woven into our very being as followers of Christ and members of FUMC Brenham.

Children's Ministry

The children’s ministry of First United Methodist Church Brenham, is a place where faith, imagination, and learning go hand in hand.  We believe the best way to prepare our kids for the future is to help them fall in love with Jesus, and connect them with safe, loving adults who model following Jesus and invest in their lives.

Confirmation 2020


Confirmation is back begininng Sunday, March 29th, 6:30 PM, via Zoom.  Eat your virtual supper and then sign on to Zoom (I'll be sending invitations to the email addresses above) and we'll have our lesson on The Holy Spirit and Worship.


Please do a bit of prep work:


1. There are two videos posted to the church Facebook Page, both "Chuck Knows Church" videos.  One is about worship and the other is about Sabbath.   Watch them BEFORE our class time.


2. There is a True/False quiz about the Holy Spirit attached to this email.  Please test your knowledge about the Holy Spirit and we'll use the quiz as points for discussion.  Again, take the quiz BEFORE our class time.


3. Create a worship center for your family to be used throughout these weeks (and beyond?) when we're worshiping online.  There is an instruction page attached to this email.  Guess what?  Create the worship space BEFORE our class time.  


Mentors and family members, please help our confirmation students by praying for them (as I know you already do, but it's a pastor thing; I have to say it) and encouraging them to spend some of there COVID-19 time away from school by doing these assignments and then logging onto the meeting on Sunday night.
