Discipleship

August 25th 2019 to September 29th, 2019

“We Are a Disciple’s Ship”

Discipleship the UMC way

As United Methodists, we make a covenant with God and each other to live out our faith according to the guidelines of the UMC as developed over the years since our founder, John Wesley, first began laying out the “way of those called Methodist”. When we become members we pledge to support the church with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

Our General Board of Discipleship offers a simple way to remember how we are to live out these promises. Using the Jerusalem Cross, they divide our actions into four quadrants
