Biographical Info

First United Methodist Church of Clifton, Texas

First United Methodist Church of Clifton has a rich heritage because of its people.  They are people who have said “yes” to Jesus Christ.

First Church, Clifton was officially organized in 1876 as a mission church and shared services with the Presbyterian church.  In 1897 the first small frame church was built on land purchase west of the Clifton railroad tracks.

By 1901 Clifton became Methodist Episcopal and had “preaching” every third Sunday, sharing its pastor with Valley Mills, Coon Creek and China Spring.

The church serves the community with after-school, pre-school and other educational programs. The faith and step-based recovery program Celebrate Recovery is offered through the church as well.
