We strongly believe that people are important to God and therefore are important to the church.  Our core values are to show that same love, care, and kindness, friendliness, and patience that He does.  Our desire is to help build families and relationships that are God - centered and God - influenced.

UMCOR will be able to offer aid in Jesus’ name to those who suffer because United Methodists give through UMCOR Sunday, (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing). In fact, it’s your generous giving that allows us to respond when disaster strikes. We will have a special offering during both services on Sunday March 26th, there will be a special offering envelope enclosed in your bulletin for this purpose. 
 " For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." ~Matthew 25:35-36
