Our Invitation to You


No Matter Who You Are or

Where You Come From,

What You Believe or Doubt,

What You Feel or Do Not Feel,

Christ Welcomes You

And So Do We.



Our Mission

The mission of the First United Methodist Church of Lockhart, Texas is to glorify God through joyful worship, to show God's love to all people, to lead people to faith in Christ, and to make disciples for Jesus Christ.




Worship In Person and Online, April 11, 2021

Join us at 9:30 AM by the Big Jesus with your lawn chair and mask, or watch the live stream from home on our YouTube channel. Pastor Clifton will deliver a sermon titled, "The Presence of Christ."


Easter Sunday Service

First UMC Lockhart welcomes you to our online worship service as we celebrate Christ's resurrection and ultimate victory over sin and death. Join us in person on the lawn at 9:30 AM with your lawn chairs, your mask, and (if you like) fresh flowers to decorate the cross with your family.

The service will also be live streamed on YouTube for those who wish to join us from home. All are welcome!


Good Friday Service, In Person and Online

We invite you to worship with us in person at 6PM Friday, April 2nd, for Good Friday when we honor Christ's ultimate sacrifice for love.

Why is this day "good"? It is good as in "holy" or "sacred," and also because through Jesus's sacrifice the door was opened to direct communion with God. And this is good indeed!
