“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.

  • 'Godspell' is Coming to Court St. UMC

    'Godspell' is Coming to Court St. UMC

    (Rockford, IL) With much fanfare, Court Street UMC welcomes the musical 'Godspell' to its sanctuary on April 20th and 21st at 7:30 p.m. and April 22nd at 2:00 p.m.
    The musical is a series of parables interspersed with a variety of modern music set primarily to lyrics from traditional hymns, with the passion of Christ treated briefly near the end of the performance. It started as a college project performed by students at Carnegie Mellon University and moved to La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club in Greenwich Village. It was then re-scored for an off-Broadway production which became a long-running success. (from Wikipedia)
    Tickets are only $5 each in advance, $7 at the door. All are welcome.
