Our church is dedicated to providing an environment where members are encouraged to become involved in relevant and meaningful ways. We offer a variety of groups (e.g., various Bible studies and Sunday school classes) to encourage individuals grow and mature in their faith. We also provide various service opportunities through local outreach programs and volunteer opportunities. Our congregation believes that involvement in our church is a great way to deepen your faith, help others in need, and support our community.
Grow in Faith
Adult Sunday School
Sunday school is a special time for fellowship and learning. Our adult classes are led by Reverend Wright in Fellowship Hall at 10:00 AM on Sunday mornings. During these classes, we explore the Bible and discuss how its teachings can be applied to our lives. We also share our experiences and learn from one another. Come join us for Sunday school and experience the power of faith and community.
Serve our Church
Ushers are an important and integral part of any church congregation. They are responsible for welcoming visitors, collecting the offering, and helping to ensure the service runs smoothly. Ushers aim to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere to all who enter and worship with us.
Our church kitchen is always looking for volunteers to help with various events throughout the year. We offer Gannon Spaghetti Dinners, homeless dinners, Second Sunday Lunches, and more. We need volunteers to help organize, welcome, cook, serve, and clean up after the meal. No experience is required, just a willingness to help. Our volunteers are essential to the success of our events and we are grateful for their help.
If you would like to help, please contact our kitchen manager, Bob Reid, at (814) 881-7027
United Women in Faith
United Women in Faith (UWF) is a church group open to all female members of the church. The group meets regularly to discuss topics of faith and how to serve our community. Each year, UWF hosts a rummage sale to raise money for missions. The rummage sale is a great opportunity for members and guests to donate items for a good cause and to come together for fellowship. The UWF also runs a knitting group that meets every week in the church's Wesley Room. Check the calendar for dates and times. All items are donated to people in need in our community.
Serve our Community
Volunteers from our church attend the Mission Barn once or twice a year to help serve our community. Volunteers help pack and double check the UMCOR buckets as well as build wheelchair ramps for people who need them in our area. Everyone always has fun spending time together while helping others.
Cleaning Buckets for UMCOR
The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) provides vital assistance to those in need through its disaster relief efforts. UMCOR supplies emergency relief kits, such as cleaning buckets, hygiene kits, and school kits, to those affected by a disaster. The cleaning buckets, also known as emergency relief buckets, contain essential supplies like mops, buckets, brooms, and cleaning supplies. These supplies are essential for cleaning up after floods, fires, and other disasters.
Rise Against Hunger
Our church is proud to support Rise Against Hunger, a global non-profit organization that works to end hunger in our lifetime. Our church is committed to helping Rise Against Hunger in its mission to provide food and life-changing aid to those in need around the world. Every year, we invite everyone to join us in packaging meals for those in need and to help create a future free of hunger and poverty. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against global hunger.
