Get Involved

Welcome to First United Methodist Garland. The best way to find your home around here is to simply jump right in. You can get to know more people by visiting one of our small groups on Sunday morning or participating in one of our many service opportunities. While we are happy to have you in worship every Sunday, to truly grow in your spiritual journey we want to help you get connected with other people who are connected to Jesus. Find a place to jump in below, and when you are ready, the invitation is always open to join our church family.

Join Us

First United Methodist Garland regularly welcomes and receives people from a variety of backgrounds. Since all that want to become members come with different experiences and backgrounds, there are a number of ways to become a member. 

  • If you have never been baptized, you will prepare for baptism.
  • If you were baptized as an infant or young child and have not made a profession of faith and been confirmed, then you will prepare to reaffirm your baptism when you take the membership vows.
  • If you are a member of another United Methodist Church, you can transfer your membership to First United Methodist Garland. 
  • If you are a member of another Christian church that does not transfer membership, you can make a profession of faith and be received as a member.

If you questions about or are interested in becoming a member of First United Methodist Garland, please contact the church office at (972) 272-3471 or
