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

 

The Season of Lent

begins with an Ash Wednesday service at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 14.
The Lenten sermon series, Wilderness, begins Sunday, Feb. 18; we’ll draw on scripture and on the book Braving the Wilderness by Brene’ Brown as we seek God’s guidance in the “wilderness” experiences in life.

Building Community with Our Muslim Neighbors, coming March 4

Building Community with our Muslim Neighbors is an event co-sponsored by Crestview Methodist and two other neighborhood churches to learn more about Islam and meet some of our Muslim neighbors.
When: Sunday, March 4 at 12:15 pm to about 1:45
Where: Fellowship Center at Crestview United Methodist Church, 1300 Morrow
What: Share a free meal of Middle Eastern food, hear a presentation on Islam (with visuals) by Mohammad Al-Bedaiwi of the North Austin Muslim Community Center, ask questions and meet some of our Muslim neighbors. A short presentation for children is also planned.
Who: Sponsoring churches are Journey Imperfect Faith Community, Episcopal Church of the Resurrection and Crestview Methodist, all located in the Crestview/Brentwood area. All neighbors are welcome!
Why: Because we believe that community is built on meeting face to face, learning about one another and celebrating shared respect and values, rather than relying on rumor and generalizations.
