As a United Methodist Church, we exist to fulfill our mission which is "to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world." To make disciples, we reach out and receive people; help them build a relationship with God; nurture and strengthen them in the Christian faith
Events and churches have long gone together because church families enjoy time together. Events provide great fellowship for the congregation and the community. So, whether it is the church picnic or a pot luck supper, we see our church calendar as being a vital part of the life of our church.
As a church community, we are called to be a community of prayer. We are called to be a body of people who continually pray for God’s blessing on one other, and on our ministry. Prayer defines who we are. It mirrors the very way we approach all areas of our life together
If we feel like a spiritual wash out then we have to take that situation to God. You need to do something for someone else. Share your faith. Read a solid Christian book about some area of your faith that perplexes you. Take a greater role in a committee or mission of the church. Volunteer for something you haven’t tried before. Support financially a particular project you have not previously supported. What happens? Recharge!

John Wesley is known for two things: co-founding Methodism and his tremendous work ethic. In the 1700s, when land travel was by walking, horseback or carriage, Wesley logged more than 4,000 miles a year.
During his lifetime he preached about 40,000 sermons. Wesley could give today's experts lessons in efficiency.
He was a natural organizer and approached everything diligently, especially religion.
