LIVING OUR FAITH

At Grace United Methodist Church we believe that the Christian faith is a way to live life more than a set of things to think.  This is not to say we work to earn brownie points with God.  As Christians, we believe we are embraced by God in love and grace before we do anything at all.  We also believe that our lives should reflect that embracing love – in our families, our places of work, our community.  We are serious here about helping people connect faith and life – being better family members, acting compassionately in the world, working for justice and peace across the globe.  As a United Methodist congregation we are connected with United Methodists throughout the world, all of whom seek to make a positive difference in the name of Jesus Christ.  As a world-wide church, The United Methodist Church reaches far and wide to meet the needs of people. To learn more about The United Methodist Church visit umc.org.
 
We want to be a place where people are transformed by the love of God.  We connect people with God in worship, in prayer, in study.  We connect people to God as we connect them with each other in joint fellowship and work projects.  We connect people to God as we reach out to feed the hungry and minister to those mired in poverty.  If there is a group or ministry that you are interested in starting, we are open to helping you do that here.
