Welcome to the Muncy First United Methodist Church
Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I am excited to bring greetings to you through this electronic media. I am glad that you chose to visit us here. If you are looking for a church home, we’d like to know that you will find a warm welcome in our church family and we would welcome you to join us for any of our worship events or activities. If you are seeking to know us better, we hope that the information here will be helpful.
Our mission (purpose) statement is CELEBRATING LIFE TOGETHER IN JESUS CHRIST - GROWING DEEPER, REACHING WIDER. We strive to live out that mission in all our activities and it is the guiding principle as we seek God’s will for new avenues of ministry.
We are a place of CELEBRATION—and this is evident in our worship services. WORSHIP is our primary reason to join together. Our focus in worship is sharing the Word of God from the Old and New Testaments in ways that are relevant for today. When we gather our attention is on God, giving God our praise and receiving God’s blessings and inspiration. Our celebration is enhanced by our music ministry and our fellowship is strengthened and enriched by our times together in worship.
We are a place of FELLOWSHIP—which is one of our priorities. We are intentional about hospitality and seek to build lasting relationships. We desire to strengthen individuals and families in their relationships with God, the congregation, each other and to God’s world. We offer a variety of gatherings where fellowship is the goal. We’d love to include you in any one of these gatherings or events.
We strive to GROW DEEPER—to grow deeper in our love of God and love of neighbor as well as deeper in our knowledge of God and God’s Word. We offer educational opportunities for all age groups and are in the process of creating small groups that will help us to grow deeper as disciples of Jesus Christ. There are a variety of offerings that one can chose from. We are Biblically based and are Spirit-led when it comes to what is offered for spiritual enrichment.
We seek to REACH WIDER—as a mission oriented congregation. These missions range from hands on opportunities to support of global missionaries and initiatives. We are always on the lookout for new and different ways to be involved in the community. Our sense of mission also includes a servant ministry where we seek to serve one another. Our prayer is that our mission and service will reach out ever wider into God’s world.
I hope that you will consider joining us as we CELEBRATE LIFE TOGETHER IN CHRIST—GROWING DEEPER AND REACHING WIDER. There is a place for you in our church family. I look forward to meeting you or being in contact with you soon.
