The United Methodist Church of the Pines is dedicated to the principles of the United Methodist Church: open hearts, open minds, and open doors. We welcome all who wish to be the hands and feet of our faith in the world.
As we nourish our new church plant in East Texas, we ask that you join us in becoming a congregation of service to the Lord God and our community.
We are grateful to our friends at Trinity Episcopal Church in Jasper, Texas, for their warm hospitality in sharing their facilities with us as we build our new congregation.
