CONNECTIONAL MINISTRY

Connectional Ministry is about bringing Christ to the community and the community to Christ as well as honoring a core value of United Methodism which is our connection with one another. Connectional Ministry is intended to connect not only the ministries within the church with one another but to also become a driving force for the community. The work of connectional ministry is to not only welcome new and potential members but to also connect those members with ministries within the church they might serve. Connection Ministry focuses on this John Wesley quote, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
