Welcome to First Duncanville! We are delighted that you are here and invite you to be a part of our community.
We are an warm and engaging congregation who are eager to meet you and help you find your way around the First Duncanville campus.
Our congregation spans a range of ages and backgrounds. You will see people in the congregation dressed in all styles—from jeans to business suits. Our hour-long service is filled with excellent teaching, preaching and music. We encourage children to attend worship services, but we also offer a variety of Sunday morning programs for children, preteens, and middle and high school kids; as well as Sunday classes and small groups for adults.
Throughout the week, we offer classes, small group and volunteer opportunities for all ages, as well as men and women only groups. These larger groups help you to connect with smaller groups of people at different locations and times during the week.
Our hope is that you enjoy your Sunday with us, and explore other opportunities on our campus. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us via e-mail, or 972.298.6121 ext. 6.
We offer two main opportunities to worship on Sundays. We proudly offer a traditional style service and have Sunday School small group style classes.
Our worship service times and descriptions can be found here.
We have ample parking on all sides of our campus. Our guest parking spots are located on the north side of our sanctuary in-between Administrative Building and the Gym.
What Should I Wear?
You will see anything from jeans and a Cowboys jersey to a suit and tie. Please come in whatever you are most comfortable. Our Modern worship is the most casual service, and our traditional worship is generally a more formal service.
What Is There For My kids?
Children are a very high priority for us. Children stay in worship through the first half of both our Sunday services, and then they are invited to Children’s Church. We also have Sunday school classes, choirs, and Sunday evening activities for children, so be sure to check out the children’s section on our Ministries page.
Contact Bridget Maloney or call 972-298-6121 for more information.
What About Youth?
We have a vibrant and growing youth program that meets twice weekly, and also goes on several trips throughout the year. Check out the youth section on our Ministries page.

Do I need to be baptized?
Every member of a United Methodist Church is a baptized Christian. This means that all baptized people, adults and children, may join the church at any time. If you have been baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, we recognize your baptism. If you have never been baptized, that’s no problem! We will be more than happy to baptize you before you become a member.
