Crestview United Methodist Church community exists to love God, love others, and serve the world – and we believe it starts across the street and around the corner with our neighborhood friends! We welcome all people, wherever they are in their faith journeys, and we hope to follow Jesus’ example as we grow together toward lives of peace, justice, and joy.
Crestview Methodist Church has been located in the heart of the Crestview neighborhood since it was founded in 1953 in north central Austin. We are proud to have spent 60 years inhabiting Crestview, serving our neighbors and our community.
Austin is our home and Austinites are our neighbors. Our church is open to all who seek to know God, follow Christ, and love others. Let’s journey together into lives of faith as we love and serve our Austin neighbors.
In the rhythms of the church year, Advent is the time of quiet expectation drawing us toward the celebration of Christ’s birth. You’ve heard of the Chinese New Year? In the seasons of the church, Advent starts a new year. It’s a time of daring to hope, daring to watch for miraculous life — the Divine among us. With us.
On each of the four Sundays in Advent & on Christmas Eve, we’ll light another candle
& consider the Signs of God’s confounding love for us all (Worship details on page 2).
Walk with us. Really. You may be surprised.
Christmas Caroling – December 14 @ 3:00pm
Spread some Christmas cheer in Crestview!
We’re gathering at 3pm for marshmallow roasting and s’mores, then walking around the neighborhood to sing Christmas carols. Bring your Santa hat and jingle bells! If you know someone living near the church who would enjoy carolers, call the church office at (512) 451-1741.
Christmas Eve Service – December 24 @ 5:00pm
Join us for an early service. We’ll enjoy solos, duets, Christmas carols, and an impromptu Christmas pageant for all children! The evening topic will be “Signs: Babe in a Manger”, and it will be an evening you won’t want to miss! Join us at 5:00pm to celebrate the arrival of Christ on earth with friends, neighbors, and family.
