For almost 150 years we've been passionate about serving our community. As a church we apply the truth of the Bible to our everyday lives and share life together as a community.
On Sundays, you can expect a friendly welcome, a dynamic service, and relevant teaching. We gather collectively as a church to worship Jesus and for discipleship by hearing about Jesus from the Bible, worshiping Jesus through song and giving, and serving one another through community and prayer.
Worship is our primary means to glorify the mystery and majesty of God. Our style includes a variety of traditional and contemporary elements in combination with United Methodist practice. There is a special time for children during each service and an overall emphasis is placed on the transforming nature of our relationship with God in Jesus Christ for all worshipers. Baptism and Holy Communion are celebrated regularly.
The sacrament of baptism initiates us into Christ's holy church and the gathered community responds in faith to God's grace by claiming and incorporating each newly baptized member into the local fellowship as well as the universal Christian church. UM's may baptize persons by any mode used by the Christian church (sprinkling, pouring, or immersion) and persons of any age (including infants and children) are suitable candidates for baptism.
The UMC encourages an open table for the sacrament of Holy Communion whereby all persons regardless of church affiliation or denomination are invited to receive the elements of bread and drink symbolizing the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Children of all ages are welcome to receive Holy Communion, or at the discretion of a parent/guardian, may receive a blessing from the pastor instead. Our congregation celebrates Holy Communion each Sunday in both services.
Thank you for visiting with us. We're glad you're here.
