We Are 12 Million Strong!

As a United Methodist Congregation we are not alone in our efforts! We join hands with almost 12 million United Methodists in over 35,000 churches (in the United States) to accomplish amazing things for Christ!  You can find more information about the United Methodist Church and how we serve the community and the world at the UMC website.

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. Since 2008, church leadership designated four areas of ministry focus for all levels of the church.

The Four Areas of Focus are:

The church also has always been deeply committed to disaster relief and advocacy efforts. It is part of our Wesleyan DNA. All of these efforts to serve God also serve our neighbors and fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
