You are invited to the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings from 10-11am during the month of October. A KUMC pastor will facilitate the Life Together curriculum that goes along with the Bonhoeffer book, as well as our Sunday sermons. We are excited to join together in this time as we grow in faith and life, together. If you have any questions please contactPastor Lauren.
Keller Trash Bash
Saturday, October 16, 9-11am
Let's join with the City of Keller to pick up trash in our community! Volunteers are to meet at Bear Creek Park at 9am to pick up supplies. Pastor Estee will lead Keller UMC volunteers. If you'd like to join us, email Pastor Estee to let us know you are coming. Wear a KUMC t-shirt if you have one!
The last “S” in SAGES stands for serving. Join the SAGES luncheon October 13, 11:30am in DAC 410, to learn about opportunities where you can participate in the life of this congregation and community. We'll welcome members of KUMC staff and lay representatives from several ministry areas. You can learn about opportunities, ask questions and find the right place where you can serve.
Bring your favorite covered dish to share or if you would be more comfortable, bring your own brown bag lunch. Masks are recommended regardless of vaccination status but are not required per Keller UMC policy. Please join us!
Living with Loss
three-week Group Begins October 18
We live in a time of unprecedented loss. Many are grieving, worried, fearful, and yet none of us wear the signs, labels or written warnings reading, "I'm struggling. Be kind to me!" If you’ve suffered a loss of any kind, Keller UMC invites you to a private time of sharing with others like you. This is not a therapy group but an effort to help you understand grief, how it affects you, and how you can be comforted and empowered to live into the days ahead.Click here for details!
Prayer Garden Workday
October 20 from 5:30-7:30pm, join us to plant flowers and shrubs and prepare the Prayer Garden for fall and winter. Bring your own gardening gloves and hand shovels. Come for the whole two hours or for whatever time you can commit. Kids and youth are welcome to help!
Every Wednesday through October 27 at 10am, Pastor Jason and Pastor Lauren will gather in the Sanctuary for Underground Seminary. This event is also Livestreamed each week if you are unable to gather in person. Grab your Bible and a journal and let's go to Seminary together!
Trunk or Treat is Back!
Grab your family and invite your friends to come play with us at our annual Trunk or Treat, October 24. Trunk hosts are needed to decorate cars and pass out candy. Children are invited to wear costumes and bring candy buckets. Games, crafts, inflatables and fun from 4:30-6pm. Trunks open for Trunk or Treating at 6pm.
Wednesdays, during the months of October and November, Choral Union will rehearse for the Advent presentation on December 12. That Sunday, Magnificat by Mark Hayes will be presented with orchestra in both the 9am and 11:15am worship services.
Choral Union is for youth and adults who would like to sing with the choir for this special event, but not sing regularly on Sunday mornings with the Chancel Choir. Rehearsals will be from 7-7:30pm. Chancel Choir will rehearse their regular Sunday service music 7:30-8:30pm.
KUMC Children's Ministries
Visit Keller UMC Kids Ministry Facebook page for announcements, spiritual formation resources and group chat opportunities.
We believe that children grow into their faith, not just by attending spiritual formation classes, but also by watching their parents and other adults practicing their faith. We also believe that it is important for all of us - young and old - to worship corporately as a community of believers. We've redesigned our Sunday mornings so that we can practice our faith in a way that reflects these beliefs.
Glen Lake Bible Camp is an opportunity for children in 3rd-5th grades to come and learn about the Bible while enjoying the adventures and joys of camp. Campers will go through Bible Discovery and Bible Exploration. We will leave Keller UMC on Friday, November 5, at 4:30pm and return at 5:30pm on Saturday, November 6.
Please notify your church family at 817-431-1332 if you or a loved one are hospitalized, or if there has been a birth, death or wedding in your family. If you are in need of pastoral care, let us know and pastoral staff will respond.

Three years ago, Keller UMC heard the need of the community and opened the Resource Center to provide food for those struggling with food insecurity in our community. Last year during COVID, we once again heard of a great need from not only Resource Center guests, but Keller ISD. KUMC felt the call and opened a Clothing Closet adjacent to the food pantry at the Resource Center.
Life is challenging. Do you feel as if you have lost touch? Confused? Hurting? Grieving? Stephen Ministers can help. We are equipped to walk with you through the storm you are facing. Stephen Ministers provide a high quality, one-to-one Christ-centered care to those in need, whether it be in our congregation or community.
