What is Katy First Moms?

At Katy First Moms, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together  and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time.

We began with a group of moms (with children 0-18 years) banded together to share their lives and parenting journeys. You can get a chance to connect with moms, face to face, while your kids are safe and making friends, too. 

First time at church since you graduated high school?  First time at church...ever? Just moved to town?  Looking for a place to belong?

Whether you grew up in the church, found us on Google, or you just stumbled through the doors on Sunday morning, it can be hard to find a place to belong.  We know and have lived that struggle and we want to invite you to be a part of the Young Adult Ministry!

The Young Adult Ministry AT FUMC-Katy is committed to helping singles and couples ages 22-35 find faithful community!  We go to soccer games, concerts, movies, restaurants, and more to enjoy fellowship and fun with one another.  We also have Bible studies and small groups to help us grow in faith.   

  Visit us on Facebook!
