United Methodists are very intentionally connectional people. We want to help connect people’s passions with the needs of others. At University Park UMC, we are committed to this, whether it’s connecting people with needs in the neighborhood, or places around the world. We stand by to help you get better acquainted, acclimated - connected - to the calling God has within your life. Your presence is a gift to our church family. My prayer is that our church family will be a gift to you. 


Peace and Blessings,
Dr. Keith Boone
Senior Pastor

A Pastor's Ponderings: Dec. 7


Helen Land Peavy Turns 101!

helen-peavy.jpgHelen Peavy will celebrate her 101st birthday on November 10. Helen Kathleen Land Peavy was born November 10, 1915, in Grand Saline, Texas. She married Shelby L. Peavy of Edgewood, Texas on January 19, 1936. Shelby passed away in August, 2000. To this marriage was born 3 boys: Shelby (Lanny) Peavy; Charles Peavy; William (Bill) Peavy. (Bill passed away in January, 1993) Shelby and Helen moved the family from Edgewood to Houston in 1954, and to Dallas in 1957. Soon after moving to Dallas they joined University Park United Methodist Church, and soon afterwards became members of the Mr. and Mrs. Sunday school class. Shelby and Helen were faithful in their attendance at UPUMC. Helen continued to attend Sunday school and church services on a regular basis until she moved to Presbyterian Village North in January, 2008. Helen currently resides at Presbyterian Village North; Arbor Place. Helen has 6 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. The family is looking forward to a big celebration for her birthday.more...

Ezri's Thoughts on his Summer Internship

Taize Reflections

A “mountaintop experience” this was not.  That designation would seem to suggest some singular moment of transformation; an encapsulated point of epiphany; an ephemeral revelation of God’s nature soon forgotten.  No, to be in Taizé is to gradually discern God through humility, service, fellowship, and, certainly not least of all, prayer.  The youth were guided through spiritual mentorship beforehand to have a certain awareness of these things as we embarked on our pilgrimage.  Clearly, the adult experience is going to vary not only from person to person but from that of a youth as well.  Not to mention the adult “programming” at Taizé is also slightly different in terms of bible study and a few scheduled activities. Thus, I’ll not speak for the experience of our youth or presume to perceive their spiritual encounters, but will reflect on my own time in Taizé, which was remarkable, trusting that the time our young people had was not too dissimilar.    more...
