Crestview United Methodist Church exists to love God, love others, and serve the world – and we believe that starts across the street and around the corner with our neighborhood friends! We welcome ALL people, whatever your story and wherever you are in your faith journey, and hope to follow Jesus’ example as we grow together toward lives of peace, justice, and joy. This church has been located in the heart of the Crestview neighborhood in north central Austin since its founding in 1953; we’re proud to have spent 60-plus years loving and serving our community — its schools, park, families, seniors and service organizations–as well as meeting needs in Austin and across the globe.

 

Upcoming Events

 

Holy Week is Here!

On Holy Thursday, March 29 at 6:30, we’ll share Communion as we remember the Last Supper, then continue with reflections on the crucifixion and music from the Choir and soloists. On Easter Sunday, April 1, we’ll start with breakfast (indoors and outdoors) and a petting zoo, followed by a worship service filled with incredible music, the flowering of the cross, and the message “God’s Laughter”. We’ll also conclude our offering for the outdoor play structures at Portland UMC Day School.

 

The Book of Revelation

“The Book of Revelation: It’s Not What You Think!” led by Pastor John Elford, University UMC.  For most people, the book of Revelation is either their “go-to” book for information about the end times or it’s the book that they never read. But Revelation, understood in its historical context, has much to offer contemporary readers and especially people of faith. It’s the primary place in the New Testament that we hear the challenge to follow God rather than empire. Join us for a four-week tour of this fascinating book. We’ll be meeting here at Crestview UMC on Monday evenings, April 9-30, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.  Please sign up in the foyer by April 4.
