As part of being a United Methodist, we pledge as members to uphold those beliefs by freely giving of our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness. These are some of the ways we contribute to our community. You are invited to join us in any of these endeavors, and please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about these or other ways to get involved.
