Our purpose as the First United Methodist Church of Azle is to know Jesus, to grow in His love, to serve one another, and to share the gospel.


from Senior Pastor, Dr. Richard Reed

How glorious to know that even when God’s people cannot meet in person, that does mean the church is not the church.  All believers are the church!  We are in ministry and mission wherever we are and with the people around us!  Even with the restrictions on gathering in crowds, Bible Studies, meetings, and ministry are being conducted through ZOOM and using online resources.  We are concerned about maintaining the safety and health of all members while continuing to be the church in the best possible ways.

Please remember:

  • The church office is still open but the hours and staffing has been reduced.  The hours are Monday 10:00 a.m. until Noon; and Tuesday-Thursday 8:30 a.m. until Noon.  If you need to come by the office at other times, please call ahead to schedule an appointment.
  • Please contact Rev. Tim Thomas if you have a pastoral need or emergency. Having all needs directed to Rev. Thomas allows us to better respond as a church family. You can contact Rev. Thomas by clicking on ABOUT US at the top page and selecting STAFF. Click on “email Timothy Thomas” and complete the contact.
  • We continue to offer online worship through our Facebook pages (First United Methodist Church of Azle and The Bridge – Modern Worship at FUMC Azle). Since we cannot gather in-person, along with our Facebook page options for worship, we have added a YouTube channel. We are updating our technology to better broadcast our worship services.
  • Financial gifts during this time can be made here on the website by clicking GIVING, through the mail, or by contacting Pat Noe. If you need to bring a gift by the church office outside of office hours, you can place your gifts in our mailbox (across the street from the office). The mailbox is a “lock box” and is secure. You can also contact the church office for any questions or concerns.

We will continue to evaluate this crisis and make decisions as the situation evolves. I want to remind you that we are a people of faith who trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for ALL things. Be prudent, be careful, do what is reasonable, and remember we will not live by fear. This is a serious situation but not one that should make us question our faith in Christ. Jesus is the Lord of all time and he is Lord of this moment. Pray for one another, our health care workers and First Responders, our nation, and our world, and let us continue to serve the Lord in all we do. 
Grace and Peace, 
Dr. Richard Reed
