Welcome to First Rowlett!

Our vision is to display the greatness of Jesus in the way we live and love others. We are a people who care for, welcome and support those around us in a way that can only be inspired by God. It's our hope that people who visit our church or interact with our people walk away feeling encouraged, refreshed and drawn closer to God. We want every man, woman and child in our community to have the chance to experience and respond to the Gospel in action through our church.

  • What do I wear?

    Come as you are. There is no set dress code to attend First Rowlett. You will see some people in their Sunday best, but most are dressed casually. The 11:00 am contemporary service is casual.

  • Where do I park?

    Limited visitor parking spaces are located in front of the main church entrance which faces East towards President George Bush Turnpike. If these spaces are filled, there is additional parking to the East and behind the building. There is overflow parking available across the street in front of the street hockey courts. The traffic flow is to enter at the East driveway and exit at the West driveway.

  • Where do I go?

    The Worship Center is just inside the main doors on the East side of the building under the covered drive thru. Inside the main doors is a Visitor Information Center where you will find information and directions to the nursery and classes for children, youth and adults.   

  • What time are the worship services?

    Currently we have one worship service at 10:30 am in our Worship Center that is also livestreamed.


    To watch our livestream, please go to our YouTube channel, youtube.com/c/FirstRowlettUMC.


    Our service combines elements of traditional and modern worship.
    Children are always welcome and have the option to attend Children's Church during the sermon.


    We want all worshipers to feel safe on our campus, so we will have two sections in the Worship Center, one that is mask-optional and another section for those who will continue wearing facemasks and engage in social distancing. With this plan in place, we believe we can provide a safe and worshipful environment for everyone attending worship.

  • What options do you have for my kids?

    A professionally staffed nursery is available for infants 6 weeks through age 3 on Sunday mornings from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. Little Life Groups (Sunday School) meet at 9:15 am for ages 3 through 5th grade. Children at First Rowlett become a disciple of Jesus Christ through a lifetime process of living, learning and loving. They grow through weekly programs including Little Life Groups (Sunday School), Children’s Choir, and Kids in Community where they learn about missions. We also offer exciting events like Vacation Bible School, Fall Fest, Easter Extravaganza, and more. 


    For more information, contact the Director of Children's Ministries, Liz Harper, liz.harper@firstrowlett.org.


  • What do you offer for youth?

    Youth seek a place to belong and to have FUN! At First Rowlett, youth build lasting friendships, have FUN, and grow in their faith. Weekly activities include Life Groups/Sunday School, small group Bible study, and a special youth worship service. Through special events like retreats, lock-ins, and summer camps, youth learn to live out their faith as disciples of Jesus Christ. First Rowlett’s youth value their participation in mission projects, especially mission trips, and truly enjoy serving others. We are passionate about equipping middle and high school students to live lives that honor and reflect Christ. Our new youth building, The Lighthouse, provides a safe and fun environment to nurture social and spiritual growth. During the 6th grade school year, our confirmation program runs from September until May. Youth Life Groups (Sunday School) meet at 9:15 am and most youth attend the 10:30 am worship service. 


    For more information, contact the Youth Director, Brittany Martin, brittany.martin@firstrowlett.org.
