The mission of First Rowlett United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world - we do that by living our life together, learning the faith together and loving others through service. Our church is warm and inviting and strives to reach people of all ages - children, youth and adults. The task of our church is to point the way to a relationship with Jesus Christ in all that we say and do. We invite and welcome new people, involve them in the life of our church and actively serve needs in the community. Our goal is that the community of Rowlett is better because the church is here. Our church has a strong focus on children, youth and young families. We are committed to passing down the faith to the next generation.
The community of Rowlett is a warm, inviting, middle class suburban neighborhood community that is strongly family oriented, with middle aged (median age 36), dual working parents with a high population of children and youth. A suburb of Dallas, TX, Rowlett is ranked one of the top 25 best places to live in Texas because of good schools, low crime, affordable housing and great neighborhoods. The Rowlett area continues to experience growth, especially with the completion of the George Bush Tollway and the DART Railway station.
