We are a warm and welcoming congregation, living to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission, “Make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
In the spirit of the Good Samaritan, we are re-thinking “church” from a noun to a verb, meaning that we put our faith in action for the community.
Please join us on Sunday mornings for worship and then stay for fellowship!
Come as you are. Bring the kids!
Worship includes a time for children with the Pastor, and Holy Communion is served to all comers and all ages.
Friendship time with refreshments follows worship in Fellowship Hall.
Our mission is to Love God, Connect with Others and Serve the World.
We hope to get as many people in our church family involved. This includes being involved with the planning teams and involvement in completing the tasks as needed.
Who We Are
The people of The United Methodist Church are part of the second largest Protestant denomination in the United States. Our worldwide connection includes more than 12.6 million members.
The United Methodist Church was formed when the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church merged in 1968. But we trace our heritage back to the movement begun in 1729 in England by John and Charles Wesley.
What We Believe
The United Methodist Church is a 12.6-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens minds and open doors through active engagement with our world. John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as ``practical divinity`` has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
How We Do
United Methodists continue to heed the lessons John Wesley taught his followers: to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed; being a compassionate presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.
We achieve this goal by serving throughout the world in different ways. In 2008, church leadership designated four areas of ministry focus for all levels of the church.
All Wesleyan and Methodist Christians are connected to the lives and ministries of John Wesley (1703-1791) and his brother, Charles (1707-1788). Both John and Charles were Church of England priests who volunteered…
Four Areas of Ministry Focus
The Four Areas of Focus express the vision and yearnings of the people of The United Methodist Church. Narrowing our focus to these four areas allows churches to use their resources effectively as they live out God’s vision for the church.
Social Principles & Creed
“Our Social Creed” is a basic statement of our convictions about the fundamental relationships between God, God’s creation and humanity. This basic statement is expanded in a more lengthy statement called the “Social Principles.”
Sacraments, Rites & Rituals
The United Methodist Church recognizes two sacraments, baptism and communion. These two acts have a special place in the church because Jesus commanded them and participated in them. Through the years, Christians have used other sacramental acts to draw closer to God.
Our Wesleyan Heritage
Wesley and the early Methodists were particularly concerned about inviting people to experience God’s grace and to grow in their knowledge and love of God through disciplined Christian living. They placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action.
Just as creeds such as the Apostles’ Creed summarize the belief of all Christians, the Articles of Religion of The Methodist Church and the Confessions of Faith of The Evangelical United Brethren Church form a foundation of doctrine for United Methodists.
