Welcome to First U.M.C. Brazoria!   

I'd like to tell you what I find exciting about our Fellowship called First U.M.C.

First, and most important, this is a place where people are eager to grow in their faith. Our Fellowship is filled with people who love the Lord, who have a desire to know and love him more, and who have heart-felt questions about their faith. There is a sense of journeying here. We are a people who are on a life adventure together.

And we are companions together on the journey. First U.M.C. has a true sense of family. We bear one another's burdens, share one another's joys, work together to further God's Kingdom. We learn from one another. Together, we are growing in faith.

One more thing - we have a great time!

There is nothing in the world that is more joyous than working together for God. So it follows that church should be fun. At First U.M.C., we take joy in worship, in study, in fellowship and in servicing our community and our world.

I hope you can join us on this journey - Pastor Don Brown

Today's Sermon: "Squirrels and The Bird Feeder"

Don Brown

Pastor: Rev. Don Brown

Oct 8, 2017

Special Music by the Chancil Choir

Scripture: Philippians 3:4b-14 NRSV

'4 even though I, too, have reason for confidence in the flesh. If anyone else has reason to be confident in the flesh, I have more: 5 circumcised on the eighth day, a member of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; 6 as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless. 7 Yet whatever gains I had, these I have come to regard as loss because of Christ. 8 More than that, I regard everything as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but one that comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God based on faith. 10 I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the sharing of his sufferings by becoming like him in his death, 11 if somehow I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
Pressing toward the goal
12 Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.
