We are open for public worship following the guidelines from our governor concerning churches and places of worship. Those guidelines can be found here. If you choose to come to the sanctuary for worship, please know that we have every other pew closed in the sanctuary. We ask members of a household to sit together and to allow at least 6 feet between members of different households. Holy Communion is celebrated by congregants in the pew; no one is invited to come forward to the Altar rail to receive Communion, as has been our practice in the past. You may bring your own bread and juice (or wine) from home and we will consecrate it together along with everyone else, and then you may serve one another within a family or take communion individually. We have sanitized, prepackaged communion cups with wafer for those who prefer to use what the church provides.
We worship every Sunday at 10:30 am. Children's worship provided during same hour for ages 4-9. Nursery provided for children under 4 years of age. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend regular (adult) worship in the sanctuary if that best meets their needs.
For those who wish to stay safe at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, we broadcast our services live on Facebook.

Learn more about who we are
We are a local congregation of the United Methodist Church in the Crossroads District of the Rio Texas Annual Conference. We are a congregation of people in the community of Flatonia, Moulton, Muldoon, and Weider, Texas who share traditional values and beliefs about God, the Father, God, the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible is God's Word to us and that it contains all we need to know about salvation and our present, and future life, with God.
We welcome all persons as we are a congregation of all persons. Our people are friendly. We love children and youth. We have a church bus and will pick you or your children up if you live in the local area, and return you to your homes after worship. This is completely free of charge, of course. We believe our mission is of utmost importance: we are in the business of introducing people to Jesus Christ and joining to worship His Father through Him in the power of the Holy Spirit. Without Christ, there is no real, enduring hope. There is no everlasting joy. There is incomplete peace. And worst of all, there is no eternal life with God. But with Jesus, we have certain hope, joy in our spirit, and complete peace, knowing we have God, the Holy Spirit dwelling in our mortal bodies and giving us eternal life with God. All this is free, without any cost. God gives us this salvation; this relationship with him, if we only ask. This is the message we have for people who worship with us each and every Sunday and attend our various Bible studies and other activities throughout the week.
The music for worship is both contemporary and traditional, but usually not in the same service. We have traditional worship on the 1st, 4th, and 5th Sundays and at most special services like Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Holy (Maundy) Thursday. On the 2nd and 3rd Sundays, we have contemporary music led by our Praise Band. We celebrate Holy Communion on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month.
