What to Expect
Welcome to First United Methodist Church of Arlington! We’re glad you’re interested in finding out more about us. We are a welcoming community growing in grace together through worship and study, while sharing God’s love by serving those in need. Our vision statement is: Come - Worship, Stay - Learn, Go - Serve!
We want to help you in your search for a great church. We invite you to visit and get a feel for our community of faith.
Below is more information that we offer to answer frequently asked questions. If you have other questions or would like more information, we invite you to contact our church office at 817-274-2571.
Where are you located?
FUMC of Arlington is located on the corner of Center and Division Streets in downtown Arlington. Guests are welcome to park in our visitor spaces in our front parking lot, off of North Street.
What are your worship services like?
In worship, we seek to experience the presence of God through our engagement with scripture, music, prayer and sacraments. We offer six worship services on Sunday mornings and invite you to find out more here.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. Many people come to worship in "business casual" clothes, but many others dress in jeans and t-shirts. It is good to worship God together—we want you to be more focused on the worship service than what you’re wearing. We think you’ll fit in, no matter how you dress.
Where do I take my kids?
Children are welcome in our worship services. If you have children under the age of five, you may choose to take them to the Sunday morning nursery. Learn more about our nursery here. We offer Sunday school for children of all ages from 9:30–10:30 am. Learn more about Sunday school here.
How do I learn more and get connected?
If you are interested in learning more about FUMC of Arlington and how you can become connected with others in this community of faith, we invite you to contact one of our pastors. If you come to worship with us, please fill out one of our connection cards located in the attendance registration binder that will be passed down during the worship service, and take it to the connection center (located at the north entrance and right outside of the sanctuary) for a small token of our appreciation for you worshiping with us. Find out more about our volunteer opportunities here.
What is church membership and how do I join?
If you are interested in becoming a member of FUMC of Arlington, we invite you to visit our membership page to learn more, or give Rev. Brian Young a call at 817-274-2571.
