We Are Glad You Stopped By!

Bowie First Methodist Church

We designed this section of our website to be very easy for you to get everything you need. We hope that it answers all your questions and that you will decide to come visit us this Sunday or anytime!

First Things You’ll Want to Know…

Well, we are here to help introduce people to God’s love. A love that is unselfish, undeserved, but oh so real and powerful! It is truly amazing what can happen when we learn to love each other the way God intended.

Why Belong to a Church?

Life is hard. Sometimes it just downright stinks. The husbands and wives, sons and daughters of this church know that having a Church “community” or Church “family” that they can turn to in times of need makes getting through life a LOT easier. Not only that, but when times are good, we can spend time learning to be better people, to love each other better, try and hold each other accountable, and challenge each other to be the best people God intended us to be so that we might fulfill God’s purpose for our lives.

My mission is making disciples of Jesus Christ for the Kingdom of God; equipping God’s people to do God’s work and to build up the church, the Body of Christ, until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. (Ephesians 4:12-13)
— Steve Martinez, Senior Pastor

What should I wear to Church on Sunday?

As the old saying goes, “Come as you are!” We want you to be comfortable and be focused on experiencing God. What ever helps you achieve that goal, is great with us. God loves you, not the clothes you wear!

You will find some people are more comfortable wearing their “Sunday best” and others come in shorts and a T-shirt! We care about you growing in relationship with God, not about how dressed up you are!

What about the kids?

Your children are more than welcome to come to the worship service, and we do our best to engage them during the service. We LOVE the sound of crying babies! That is the sweet sound of our church growing!

Do I need to read the Bible before coming to church?

Absolutely not! Most of our members haven’t even done this! Just come, be relaxed, find some time to be quiet and still with God. He knows what is going on with you and wants to get closer to you.

Will you embarrass me as a first-time guest?

No way! We will not ask you to stand up, speak or in any way make you feel uncomfortable during the service! We will try our best to greet and meet you before and after the service, so be prepared for some FRIENDLY people!

I have questions, can I meet with the Pastor?

Yes, of course! Please contact Steve Martinez by email at: smartinez62@outlook.com or by phone: (940) 872-3384, to schedule an appointment. Pastor Steve Martinez would LOVE to meet with you!
