Everyone has a story.

Our stories are the basis for inspiration, because they remind us of where we came from and why the direction we are headed is so important.

The story of FUMC is filled with themes like commitment, passion, faith and boldness – and it fuels the Mission of our future: “To inspire people to boldly live out the Hope of Christ”.

Although we could tell stories of faith for hours, here are some of the highlights of our journey…

Atlanta’s first Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was organized in 1873. The services were held under a brush arbor near or on the site of Ellington Memorial Hospital. By 1939, FUMC had moved from a very small beginning, to become the leading church in the Texarkana District.

Today, we continue the rich history of our church as we “Inspire people to boldly live out the Hope of Christ”.
