“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.

  • Challenged by the 'Renegade Gospel'

    Challenged by the 'Renegade Gospel'

    (Rockford, IL) People at Court St. UMC are finding that following Jesus is not a 'bed of roses' - or maybe it is with the thorns. Studying Mike Slaughter's book, 'Renegade Gospel,' is challenging our thinking about how we do things if we are truly following Jesus. Using the book as a basis for the six weeks in Lent, we are continuing to hear about it at our Noon Lenten Worship services in the Chapel on Wednesdays. Come and join us if you enjoy a challenge!
