A People of Hope and Healing

Free Shoes 

"Tennies and Treats" 

With a "Trunk or Treat" format, we are giving away shoes to the Hico community's children in grades PK-5 on Halloween. The fun is from 5 - 7 pm. Each vehicle in the parking lot of our Family Life Center will give away Halloween candy to all children and will also have athletic shoes (stuffed with socks and Halloween treats) in the size you need for your child. Our outdoor play space will be open for sandbox play and other yard games during the event. Bring your little goblins in costume for an early trick or treat opportunity. 

Come early for the best selections.

Sunday Worship 10:45

Sunday School 9:30

"The light of Christ  shines in the darkness."


You'll find some folks in jeans and some in suits, but all with a friendly smile. We invite you to come just as you are. Pastor Don's message is always relatable, relevant, encouraging, and scriptural. Our music is a blend of classic hymns and contemporary worship songs with a little southern gospel sprinkled in. Piano, guitar, and spirited choir lead us into praising our great God together. The sacrament of Holy Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month.

Recent Wednesday Online Worship

We all need to refocus our hearts on Jesus everyday. By the middle of the week, we need recharging. During your lunch hour, join us on-line for a brief time of prayer, scripture, and music every Wednesday at 12:30 pm.





Good Things are Happening Here!

But someone will say, "You have faith and I have works." Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. James 2:18

Prayer Requests

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Come and join our Prayer Shawl Ministry on the second Tuesday of each month at 1:00 in the Fellowship Hall.  No experience is necessary.  


The Healing Shawl


This is love... that I know.

It's not the love of my youthful days

But the love of a stranger far away. 

She knitted for me a healing shawl

And prays for strength if I should fall. 

These silky strands which embrace my soul

Surround me with love and make me whole. 

Below this warm fabric lay the depth of its meaning

Healing and love is what it is bringing. 

The love of strangers, family and friends, 

Nourish my body and urge it to mend.

Marilyn Maxen and Carol Wertheimer

Community Wide Family Gatherings...

Everyone is Welcome!

It’s time to be re-united as a church family and into a deeper reunion with our community as family. The third Saturday of each month we will be hosting Family Re-Union Nights at the Family Life Center. We invite you, your friends and family and everyone in the greater Hico community to join us at our safe outdoor place to gather for food and family friendly activities.


Email us at office@fumchico.org for more information.

Historic in the Present

Faithful Methodists have been worshiping in this same spot since 1881. While we are proud of our legacy, we do not live in the past. Our history calls us to live in the present and prepare for the future. Some parts of our worship include classic liturgical elements while avoiding getting lulled into numb repetition. Technology is no stranger in our sanctuary, with the regular use of outstanding audio and video.
