Munger Place Church

A congregation in East Dallas that loves its neighborhood.

What We Want East Dallas to Know About Us: We believe that Dallas doesn’t necessarily need more card-carrying Christians; what Dallas needs are more people who are living like Jesus. We believe that commitment to faith in Jesus isn’t a finish line: it’s the starting line, and the subsequent life of faith is about God’s gracious work to change us from the heart outward. We believe that being a Christian ought to mean that you are becoming more courageous and less fearful, more generous and less greedy, and more about reconciliation and less racist. We believe that there is no one whose life disqualifies him or her from beginning to follow Jesus; we also believe that there is no part of our lives that Jesus isn’t asking us to turn over to his Lordship. What It Means to Be Methodist: Munger is a United Methodist congregation, the East Dallas campus of Highland Park UMC. As Methodists, we believe that living like Jesus is paramount. United Methodists are part of the larger Christian faith and affirm all of the historic beliefs of the faith as articulated in the historic creeds of the church. We affirm the God of Israel who has been decisively revealed in Jesus of Nazareth and continues to be present and at work in our lives in the form of the Holy Spirit. This understanding of God is known as the Trinity. We believe that God has been revealed through the Bible.

Mission: The original Munger Place Methodist Church was founded in 1913, and the beautiful sanctuary built in 1925. For years it was one of the largest and most influential churches in Dallas. In the latter part of the 20th century, however, the section of Dallas called Old East Dallas went through a long period of decline, and so did the church. By the summer of 2009 the former Munger Place congregation could no longer afford to keep its doors open, and the larger United Methodist church organization in North Texas stepped in. Nearby Highland Park United Methodist agreed to assume responsibility of the Munger Place site, with the understanding that HPUMC would raise the money necessary to renovate the building, and that as soon as possible, HPUMC would plant a new congregation in the old Munger Place building. It was really important to everyone involved that the legacy of Munger Place would continue, and that Munger would continue to be a great neighborhood church. The idea was that Munger Place Church would be an extension campus of Highland Park United Methodist, in the same way that the University of Texas at Dallas is an extension campus of the larger University of Texas system. In October of 2010, after extensive renovations, a new congregation was launched out of the old Munger Place church building: Munger Place Church. Today, Munger Place Church stands as a symbol of resurrection and renewal for the surrounding community. Expect great things!

In Florida but back Sunday

I'm in Tampa for a Mungarian wedding, but I'll be back Sunday. Don't forget that church will only be 45 minutes this week, so you really do have no excuse! (We're doing a live podcast recording with the Bible Project guys Sunday afternoon, and the extra 15 minutes at 11:45 will make a big difference.) See you Sunday: 9:30 AM, 11:00 AM, or 5:00 PM. Can't wait. 😉 --Andrew

[10/08/19]   Hi. I’m Kate. I have a new life in Christ. And I am recovering from hypocrisy, needing validation, and desiring vindication. This week I am working the steps as I recover from bruised pride/ego.

The Gospel According to Mark

For the next 2 months, I'll be reading and blogging through the Gospel of Mark. YOU CAN DO THIS!!! Think about what kind of person you'll be in 2 months, after reading 5 minutes every weekday of this EXPLOSIVE little book. Read for some basic background on Mark, as well as a brief thought on today's reading:
"Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the hard times you’re facing mean that the Lord has abandoned you. In fact, it might be because of his love for you that the hard times have come: diamonds are only made when pressure is applied." --Andrew For the next 2 months, I'll be reading and blogging through Mark.

Munger Moms sure know how to have fun! They ventured to the Aboretum for some 80’s jams under the stars. 🎶 💃🏻 ✨ Be sure to check out our other Mom’s Night Out events at

The Great Commission

WE DID IT. For the last 4 months, we've been reading through the Gospel of Matthew, and today we come to the end: the last words of Jesus to his disciples. Here is a reflection on those words, and why we do what we do at Munger, the way we do it. --Andrew My personal philosophy of ministry.
