To be a reaching, nurturing, sending community of committed followers of Jesus.
"Equipping disciples to live God's mission to renew the face of the earth." (Psalm 104:30)
We believe that we have been called to put our faith into action by bringing Jesus to life for everyone we meet, both inside and outside the church building.
We realize that a significant part of Missional Living is the development of the personal relationships that make it possible for us to share our faith with others. We seek actively to develop relationships by providing opportunities for coaching and mentoring each other along our faith journeys. We value the connection between faith and family and will do all we can to foster that connection and make MUMC a place where family ties are strengthened. Further, we seek to encourage connections among all who enter our doors, as we become for each other one family in Christ, by focusing on recognizing each person’s place and value within that family of faith.
An equally important tenet of Missional Living is engaging with the community at large. As we interact with that community, we strive to be inclusive, with the knowledge that embracing the diversity of God’s creation is part of our calling. We will continue to focus on ways in which we can be a more welcoming, inviting, and hospitable people and place for all whom we encounter. We seek creative avenues through which to invite the community into our midst and to encourage the celebration of each person’s unique talents and gifts. With openness and humility, we aim to see Christ in everyone we meet and to embody Christ for others.
