United Methodist Church
Grace and Peace in the name of
Jesus Christ! The Church's primary task is to fulfill Jesus'
call to "go therefore and make disciples." At Saint Francis,
we are embracing this call by serving Christ and the
surrounding community through acts of worship, compassion,
and teaching. We encourage a sense of belonging and mutual
service within our fellowship. Family, youth and children's
ministries, short and long-term educational opportunities
and meaningful worship are all part of our life together.
Wherever you are in your
spiritual journey, we are ready to welcome you to our St.
Come visit us!
St. Francis UMC Mission Statement
We seek to be an inviting, Christ-centered
community identified by compassion and Christian love; devoted to spiritual growth and providing refuge from the clamor
of the world.
St. Francis Drama Ministry
St. Francis is starting a Drama Ministry!! Our teams will

children's teams, youth teams, adult teams and a cast of
supporting teams. So we're looking for ALL ages, ALL
abilities, and ALL talents.
If you like to act, sing, speak, write, even play an instrument,
we will find a place for you. If you wish to join this
unique ministry or need more information, please contact
Mike Smith. Join today!!
