About Us

         The First United Methodist Church of Killeen is a United Methodist Community of faith, located in Killeen, Texas. Serving the community since 1892, the church takes a “grace-based” approach to reaching those who like to ask questions, are a bit skeptical of easy answers, and are open to the journey of discovering truth. Weekly services occur each Sunday morning, and services, as well as weekly bible studies, groups, and events are open to the community.
