Pecan Street Mission

Who Are We?

Pecan Street Mission is a new faith community of First United Methodist Church of Decatur. Although still in the early stages of planting, our vision is to create a community of people seeking to live out a deeply rooted love of God & neighbor in the everyday, ordinary stuff of life. Convicted that a life of faith is more about our daily lives than an hour on Sunday, we are building on the foundations of:


  • Service: In our families, neighborhoods, and places of work & play
  • Gathering: To share life, build beloved community, and carry one another along
  • Worship: As an offering of our most vulnerable selves before God

Pecan Street Mission is creating a community of people seeking to put their faith into action, to anchor deep in the love of God and to carry God’s love into every part of our lives. We seek to love deeply, so that we might live differently.

If you have been searching for a community to call home, a safe place to explore questions of faith, or a way to put your hands & feet to work in service – then we invite you to come & see this new thing God is doing through Pecan Street Mission.

ALL are welcome – ALL are loved – ALL are called.

Join in this adventure of plating & launching a new faith community in the heart of Decatur!
