Finance Chair, Communications Team
"My life changed the day I walked through the doors of First UMC, Brackettville. It's family here. It's community. I worship here and I serve here for the glory of God."
"When I first came to town, I noticed that the people I was meeting out and about in the community, making things happen, were Methodists. They were the same people I saw when I came to church on Sunday.
It helped me realize, that a big part of Methodist teaching and tradition is about being part of what goes on in the world Monday - Saturday, as well as Sunday.
That's important. Faith is all about what we do all week long. That's why I'm here."
Finance and Membership Secretary, Church Historian
"Over the years, I have attended many churches. When we moved to Brackettville, I had missed being a part of a church. This church has become the family I didn't know I needed. The warmth and love everyone receives as soon as they walk in the doors, is unlike anything I have ever known. "
Trustee Committee Chair
"I love this church and all the folks who attend services and participate in the many other church and H.O.P.E. Center activities. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly, helpful, and committed to supporting the church and community.
I enjoy singing in the choir and also working in Christian fellowship with others in the church, at the H.O.P.E. Center, and in the community."
Finance and Trustee Committee Advisor
"Why am I here? The folks!"
Trustee Project Co-ordinator
"Kathryn and I first came to First UMC, because the church ministered to our grandson through the youth breakfast. We thought that was pretty cool."
We've stayed because it's a pretty nice place, and we like to come early to listen the the gathering music.
