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.

Two Bible Studies Coming in September

Two Bible studies will be offered here at Crestview UMC by University UMC on Tuesday nights, Sept. 11 through Oct. 9 at 7 pm. UUMC is using our building to provide a more convenient location for their members who live north—and Crestview UMC members are welcome to attend as well! One study, led by Senior Pastor John Elford, is The Gospel of John: Tales of a Jewish Mystic; the other, led by former Associate Pastor Bill Frisbie, is on gender identity and gender roles in the Bible.
