Welcome! Travis Park UMC is an urban church, and we want you to know that getting here is easier than you might think. We’ve put together this easy-step guide to make your visit enjoyable.
FIRST, WHO ARE WE?
We’ve been around awhile. Established in 1846, our Church is grounded in history and vision. Today, the people of Travis Park Church continue seeking to make the world a better place through transformation of self and community. We serve and learn as brothers and sisters from all walks of life: rich and poor, housed and homeless, gay and straight, black and brown and white, secular and sacred, PhD and GED. The people of Travis Park Church seek to live and love as God does: passionately and unconditionally. God calls us on a journey forward, to break down the walls of prejudice, and to embrace all our brothers and sisters. Travis Park UMC is affiliated with the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) as a reconciling congregation. RMN is a group of United Methodist congregations who have approved statements welcoming and affirming people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
Travis Park Plaza Garage is across the street from the Church on Travis St. On Sundays, you can park free on floors 4, 5 and 6 of the garage until 1 p.m. When you enter the garage, you will receive a parking card. When you enter the Church, you will be offered a similar parking card. When you leave the garage after Church, scan both cards (in the order you received them), and the guard rail will raise. Also, during the week, the small parking lot along the side of the Church is there for you if you’re visiting the Church on business or to be part of an event. Be sure and ask for a “visitors permit” from the front desk.
Sunday worship, with communion, begins at 9:45 a.m. Sunday school for all ages follows the morning worship at 11:15 a.m. The worship service music is a mix of praise music and traditional/classical music.
We are known for our proactive stance on matters of social justice and human rights. You will discover many ways to get involved in our body of work if you choose to do so. Corazón Ministries, Inc. (CMI) , the Methodist Federation for Social Justice, Reconciling Ministries Network, Texas Coalition Against the Death Penalty, and more provide an active platform for you to engage.
One way to get up to date on what we’re about is to subscribe to our weekly Sunday newsletter. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you would like to receive it. An electronic version is sent out by Friday evening of each week. Printed copies are available at the Sunday worship service.
