What we believe

“The United Methodist Church is a 12.6-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens minds and open doors through active engagement with our world. John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.”

Who we are

Polk Street UMC is comprised of many different people from all walks of life. We have large families, young couples, grandparents, college students, families who are new to town and families who have been with our church for years. This large diversity we see in our church helps us to reveal the nature of our faith and the unity we find in our love for Jesus Christ.

What we do

Polk Street United Methodist Church celebrates a Christian based life and community. Not only do we offer Worship services, we participate and encourage activities that strengthen our community members in their faith through small groups, bible studies, and very active youth ministries. We also participate and support many charitable organizations in the Texas Panhandle.
