Welcome to Alvin First United Methodist Church.
As a father and a husband in a world that seems to have chaos all around, I have grown to realize the importance of being a part of a community of faith. It is what keeps me anchored on what is right and pure with hope and assurance. That is my personal desire for you, to find a home where the chaos seems to fade.
Alvin First United Methodist Church can be that place for you and invites you to become a part of our family where we seek to KNOW Christ, GROW in Christ and GO to serve Christ. One way to get to KNOW Christ is to come and worship with us at 8:30 for a Traditional service or at 11:00 for a Contemporary service. We also have a youth worship service on Wednesday’s at 6:30. We GROW together through small groups such as Bible studies, Sunday school, and home groups. We GO as we participate in the many missional opportunities, both local and international, that are available for all ages.
You will discover that Alvin First United Methodist Church is a great place where you can become a part of a community that works together to make an impact on each other, our community, and our world.
It is our desire that this web site will point you to the many different opportunities that we have for you to connect with this faith community so that your unique passion and gifts can be used to glorify God.
Thank you for visiting our web site please feel free to email me or any of the staff if we can be of any service to you.

Who Can Take Holy Communion?
The sacrament of Holy Communion is a means of grace, whereby we draw close to God through Christ Jesus by remembering the last supper Jesus had with his followers before going to the cross. In Communion we believe that Christ is with us and in the elements of communion, but they are symbols of body and blood of Christ. All believers are welcomed to the Lord's table and even children are allowed to take communion since Christ himself said, "do not hinder the children to come to me." If someone who has not professed Jesus as their savior takes communion it is on the understanding that this person will make their profession soon there after since in it we are claiming the death of Christ as our death to the wages of sin. If you have questions, email one of our pastors.
