Who we are

We are a community of faith that seeks to serve God and to serve one another. Christ invites all to enter into a new relationship with God, through his love. This relationship is available to all, regardless of age, race, ethnic origin, or status of life. Industry UMC, as a welcoming people invite all to open their hearts and minds to the presence of Christ in our midst. It is our hope and prayer that as you worship beside us, that God touches you in your life. God speaks to us in many ways, through prayer, through the hearing of His Word as contained in the Bible, through music, or through silence. Our worship encompasses all of these, with a hope that you may hear what God has to say to you.

Children are welcome in our sanctuary. There are children’s worship folders in the back of the church for those who need them. The sound of children in worship is the sound of our church growing. We have a childcare room during worship for younger children. Please ask any of the ushers or greeters for assistance if you wish to use this offering. However, we prefer to have the children with us as a family worshipping God together.

As United Methodists, we affirm God’s love at work in the world, calling each of us to live a better life. God is at work in the world. Through our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness we seek to be an instrument of His grace in transforming our own lives and the lives of those who live in our community.

History of Industry United Methodist Church, Industry TX

Industry United Methodist Church has the unique distinction of being the oldest German Methodist Church in Texas, having been established in 1847 during a time of great unrest in our country and in the church.

The Methodist Church in the United States had over 1 million members in 1844, when it divided into two churches, North and South, over the issue of slavery.

By 1847, Industry was well established through the hard work of its German settlers. It had postal service, a hotel, and a drug store, but no church. Reverend Henry Bauer, a member of the Methodist Church North, came to Industry after serving as a missionary to German settlers in Texas. A congregation was organized, a building erected, and services held as an independent "Brother Church". When Reverend Bauer was called to mission work in Nicaragua, the Texas Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church - South appointed Reverend F. Vordenbäumen to serve the church at Industry. Under his leadership the church grew to 125 members.

During the Civil War, the church was conflicted between those who felt allegiance to the "northern" church of Reverend Bauer and the "southern" church of Rev. Vordenbäumen. In 1866, some members of the church voted to establish the congregation as a part of the northern Methodist Episcopal Church, while others maintained their relationship with the Methodist Episcopal Church - South. These groups existed separately until 1903 when the Methodist Episcopal Church - South congregation was discontinued.

In 1939, the Methodist Church, north and south, reunited and the Industry church became part of the new Southwest Texas Conference.

The historic white church, which still stands on our property, was built in 1867. It has been designated as a state historical site and continues to be used for Special Worship Services, 5th Sunday Hymn Sings, and weddings.

Today, our congregation has a membership of over 250 and ministers to over 300 adults, youth and children. Built on a tradition of serving Christ in this community for 170 years, the church offers a range of study, worship, and mission activities. We remain steadfast in our goal of “Offering Christ to All” and seek to reach out to those who are in need of a spiritual home   Edit
