“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20a spells out the task of this mission. We seek to fulfill that mission by becoming an ‘inviting, welcoming, nurturing, and serving community of Christ.’ We invite you to join us in that endeavor. We eagerly want to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

  • 'Once on This Island Jr.' comes to Court Street!

    'Once on This Island Jr.' comes to Court Street!

    (Rockford, IL) 'Once on this Island Jr,' a musical full of great storytelling and brilliantly crafted music by the composers of SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK, will be the production produced by the third annual Court Street United Methodist Church Fine Arts Camp.
    The script is an adaptation of ONCE ON THIS ISLAND which won this year’s Broadway Tony award for Best Musical Revival. The show includes elements of the Romeo and Juliet story and elements of the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, 'The Little Mermaid.' It concerns a peasant girl on a tropical island, who uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes.
    Plan now to support our Performing Arts Camp Youth by attending one of these performances of ‘Once On This Island Jr.’ for only $10 each/$5 student:
    Friday - August 3 - 7:00 p.m.
    Saturday - August 4 - 2:00 p.m.
    Sunday - August 5 - 2:00 p.m.
    All performances are in Court Street UMC’s Sanctuary.
