First United Methodist Church in Grapevine has offered a Bilingual Worship experience since 2009. Starting this Saturday, February 3, the bilingual service will be moving to Saturday evenings rather than Sunday mornings! The Bilingual Worship Service embraces the Spirit of God in "Fiesta" with excitement and newness by meeting people where they are. Rev. Armando Alvarado, who leads the service, shares that our hope is to create “a worship service where we recognize that the church of Jesus Christ is unified across cultures, languages, and even in our differences.”
Back when the service first began, Rev. Alvarado explained, "We want to be welcoming and inviting to all people, not just those who speak English. We're not doing this to make people become Methodist. It's open to all people of all denominations. We just want people to come and enjoy a sense of community." This goal remains the same today. You are invited to experience a worship fiesta with your neighbors, community and other families. Whether you speak Spanish or English, you will be engaged in the excitement of worshiping in the Hispanic tradition.
The Bilingual worship service will gather each Saturday at 6:00 PM in Founders Chapel at First United Methodist Church, located at 422 Church Street, one block west of Main Street in historic downtown Grapevine.
