First United Methodist Church of Brownwood logo



As a church, we want to be known for our extraordinary generosity with both our time and money toward those in our local community.

Through our partnerships with great local nonprofits and our church's initiatives, we provide opportunities to meet the real needs of our community as we serve together.

We partner with Meals On Wheels, Good Samaritan and Food for Thought.

Blessed Hands Prayer Shawl Team

Meets each Wednesday from 1:30-3:00 pm in the Garden Room. The making of a prayer shawl is a spiritual practice which embodies countless thoughts and prayers for the recipient. It is gift given freely with no strings attached. Coordinator: Karen Dodds, 325-642-0950

Bread Ministry Team

Each Tuesday at 5:00pm in the church kitchen, a small group meets to bake and sack loaves of bread. Loaves of bread are delivered to guests, shut-ins, and members who have been ill or suffered tragedies in their families.
