First United Methodist Church
Saturday, January 19, 2019


Dear Friends and Members of First United Methodist Church, Daingerfield, Texas:

Our church is celebrating our heritage with a Homecoming on Sunday, September 18, 2016.  Over 170 years ago there was a “Campground of Methodist” in Daingerfield, and 160 years ago the first Methodist Church was built in Daingerfield.  We are so grateful that God continues to bless our church.

You are cordially invited to celebrate with us on September 18, 2016 beginning at 10:00 with a “meet and greet” and lite refreshments in the Activity Center.  Historical displays put together by the Homecoming and Historical Committees will be available for early viewing and we encourage you to tour our New Education Building.  Former pastor of Clear Lake United Methodist Church and present District Superintendent of the East District in the Texas Annual Conference, Rev. Tony Vinson will bring our morning message. Immediately following Worship, we will move to the Activity Center for lunch and a short program of “reflections and remarks” by honored guest. 

                                         10:00 a.m.     Greetings and Gathering

    11:00 a.m.     Worship (Nursery Provided)      

    12:15 p.m.     Lunch in Activities Building
