Our Mission

To be a loving church with a mission

to worship God, serve and nurture one another, and bring people to meet, know, and love Christ.

The United Methodist Church The people of The United Methodist Church are putting our faith in action by making disciples of Jesus Christ for t he transformation of the world. John Wesley and early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. The emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
