Welcome to the First United
Methodist Church of Bonham!
Welcome to the First United Methodist Church
We start our Sundays with Breakfast at the Heights at 8:00 to 9:00 in the
Family Life Center with hot breakfast and a chance to be nourished by the Word
with a short message. Sunday School runs from 9:30 to
10:30 and we have a class for all ages. Worship begins at 10:30 in the
Sanctuary and I invite you to discover a place of community -- a church family
whose mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of
The First United Methodist Church of Bonham began in 1844, and was the first
church in Bonham after it became the county seat of Fannin
County in 1843. We have a long and rich heritage in this county and our
community. In 1987 we began a community preschool program. In 1994 The Clarence
White Family Life Center was completed. The Life Center offers a place of
fellowship and community-building.
Last year we worked on creating “A New Comfort Zone in God’s Kingdom” with a
capital project to replace our heating and air-conditioning system and to
update our sanctuary. We also began our Breakfast at the Heights ministry which
provides glimpses of God’s kingdom in a little more relaxed comfort zone. You
are invited to check out our new look, and our new options to get “comfortable”
in God’s kingdom.
We are always working on stretching our comfort zone for the work of God’s
Kingdom. We sponsor Upward Basketball, Boy Scout Troop 260, and KoolAfter School-- programs that
benefit the children and families of Bonham. We offer a community-wide Ladies
Bible Study, “High Noon” Bible Study and many other ministries and outreach
We are a church family eager to invite you to experience the love of God
demonstrated in our worship, missions, and ministries.
