The building located on the corner of 4th Street and 2nd Avenue is the place where the congregation of believers known as Grace United Methodist Church meets for worship and prayer, planning mission and ministry, and sharing of one another’s joys and burdens. We come because Jesus has invited us. We come because we believe He laid down His life for us. We come to grow deeper in our faith. We come because we realize that He loves us eternally. We come because we are grateful for what God has done and is doing. We come to learn more about God’s love for us and the world. We come to find out what God wants us to do to share this good news with others.
If you are seeking answers to the meaning and purpose of your life, and if you are willing to answer the invitation of the One who calls out, “Come and see,” you are welcome. Our focus is not about religion. It is about relationship, the relationship God offers us through the atoning sacrifice made by Jesus Christ on the cross.
We are a part of the body of believers in the world known as the church. If God is tugging at your heart to see what is happening here, then follow that still small voice. We will be glad to meet you.
