We are a community of faith in the greater Urbana community. We worship in Urbana Middle school at 10:00 am every Sunday
Here is a little bit about us:
Our second, grow, seeks to grow disciples through study and fellowship. Building our devotion to God and our relationships with one another we are able to encourage each other to live into the plan God has for us as disciples of Jesus.
The third area of discipleship is Give. Our give ministries are what happens within the life of the church. This would include the ministry teams that give their time to set up for worship each week, the worship teams, the finance and administrative teams. We see growth in this area as twofold. First we give of our time to the faith community in order to grow deeply committed followers of Jesus. Secondly we invest financially to the work of the church so that we may give a portion of what we have been blessed with.
Finally, go involves Faithpoint sharing the Good News while meeting the real needs of the community. We understand that there are times where people need to be offered bread to fill their plate before they can digest with the Bread of Life (Jesus) has to offer in their lives.
United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We are evangelical, but moderates rather than fundamentalists. We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time looking to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion.
Methodists have been known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We have historically valued well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that was lively, and small groups where people could grow in faith.
Methodists have open hearts, and open minds–and welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith.
