First Church offers three different worship services each Sunday morning. When you arrive on Sunday morning look for one of our Andrew Ministers. They will be wearing name tags with yellow ribbons. Their purpose is to answer questions and provide information to you.

History of First Church
First United Methodist Church, or First Church, has a rich heritage spanning over 100 years of ministry in the Round Rock community and beyond. Our sanctuary and campus stand as a tribute to the dedication and loving service of our very first members. Starting in 1879 as a circuit church, First Church has now grown to over 4500 members. Church History
Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.
As members of the United Methodist Church, we share beliefs with other Christian groups, including faith in God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Traditionally, we have emphasized the following:
- God will comfort, guide, and forgive every person, no matter who they are or what they’ve done.
- Serving others and Christian faith go hand in hand.
- We find peace with God and spiritual fulfillment both in solitary moments of reflection and in a community of faith.
- Our Church is made up of a people who share faith in Jesus Christ.
- We seek to make our private and our public actions congruent in our faith.
- We are a global movement of churches that’s making a difference in the world.
- In practice, we are similar to other Protestant denominations, affirming our beliefs through the sacred symbols of baptism and communion.
