Our 8:00 and 11:00 services are traditional worship services with hymns, organ and choir, with pastors in robes and stoles. The 9:30 service is contemporary with a praise band leading worship, with pastors in casual clothes. The 9:30 contemporary service also has as a part of it a children’s worship time, when children hear a children’s message in the service and then leave for their own age appropriate worship activity before returning to the service to join their parents. The dress code for all services is – whatever. Some dress up for church with suits, ties and dresses, and others dress down for church with t-shirts, jeans or other casual clothes – and everything in between. You are welcome in whatever feels comfortable for you. Our congregation averages a little over 300 in worship, spread between our 3 Sunday services. We also have Sunday School classes for adults at 9:30, and for children, youth and adults at 11:00. A nursery, with two trained and paid staff, is available at all three services. Please know children are welcome to join us for worship (a cry room is also available).
Our church has an amazing, 160+ year history of ministry in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.The German pioneer families that first formed Fredericksburg UMC have provided a living legacy in the form of descendents, as well as the rich faith tradition that has been passed down through the years.Most importantly God is still moving in the hearts of those who gather for worship here.
It is our hope that when you come to worship at Fredericksburg UMC you will encounter the love of God, through the music, through the message, but especially through the warm hospitality you will receive while you are here.
