"Methodism has its roots in eighteenth century Anglicanism. Its founder was a Church of England minister, John Wesley (1703-1791) who sought to challenge the religious assumptions of the day. During a period of time in Oxford, he and others met regularly for Bible study and prayer, to receive communion and do acts of charity. They became known as "The Holy Club" or "Methodists" because of the methodical way in which they carried out their Christian faith. John Wesley later used the term "Methodist" himself to mean the methodical pursuit of biblical holiness." www.thisischurch.com
What should you expect if you visit us for Sunday worship?
You should expect to be part of an ordered worship service conducted with dignity and reverence in the company of like-minded members of God's house.
Effective February 10, 2019, Reverend Ann Stevens has been tapped to be the interim pastor of the Poolville United Methodist Church. She has been appointed by the District Conference to serve as pastor until mid July until a permanent pastor is named to replace recently retired Neil Norman.
We are blessed to continue that service by providing the ministries of the Church to our members and the surrounding community. We continue to look for opportunities to serve the Kingdom of God as we ever listen for God's call upon our communal and individual lives. It is certainly a blessing for Hoyt and me to be your pastoral family as we work together to be the hands and heart of Jesus Christ to each other and to the Poolville community and to the world.
What a blessing to be called once again to serve this wonderful congregation of God's people at Poolville United Methodist Church. The church is 134 years old and has been refurbished so that the facility appears brand new in the tradition of historic Texas country churches . . . a well-preserved real historic gem that continues to serve the Kingdom of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
