“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 wait to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

  • Help our Young Adults with UMCOR Project

    Help our Young Adults with UMCOR Project

    (Rockford, IL) Part of sharing our faith is sharing the many blessings we have received. In that spirit, the young adult group will be preparing Health Kits for distribution by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). UMCOR is a wonderful organization that is part of the larger United Methodist Church. Unlike many other agencies which provide aid to disaster victims, 100% of all UMCOR donations go to direct aid. The costs of personnel, resources, and administration are absorbed by the denomination and are paid for, in part, by our apportionments. Another of the many reasons apportionments are so important! Please consider donating any of the following items for assembly by the young adult group. Donated items can be left in the church office and marked young adults. Thank you!
