About Our Church


Who We Are

We are a growing United Methodist Congregation with ministries for new families, children, youth, and older adults.  Our mission, ‘to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world’, inpires us to reach out to our neighbor, listen to them, accept them, share the gospel in word and deed, and invite them into the family of faith.  We have a direct responsibility for the wholeness of the people of our community in which we study, work, shop, and play.  We believe that by loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and by loving our neighbor as ourself, we are joining Christ in building the kind of life God desires.    

  

Our Goals at Sellersburg UMC...

 We help people relate to God and help them deepen their relationship with Him

First, we offer people opportunities to know the grace and love of God.  Whether a guest or long-time member, just beginning the journey of faith or well along the road—all are in need of God’s love in Christ.  Through ministries of invitation and hospitality we welcome the all discover the richness of relationship with God.


We nurture people in Christian living

Second, we strive to nurture people of all ages in the Christian faith and to help them practice the disciplines of discipleship.  A commitment to God does not end with a one-time decision.  We come to church to be enriched and equipped to do the work of love and be Christ’s disciples in the community. Through worship, baptism, Communion, Bible study, prayer, and other means of grace, we’re strengthened for ministry.


We support people in their ministry

As members of the congregation, we’re sent into the community to serve those in need and to make our community more loving and just.  The church exists not to serve itself but to serve the world.  We believe that the Holy Spirit empowers and guides us in ministries of outreach and that wherever there’s need and suffering, we meet Christ, already at work.


Our vision is “To Know, To Grow, To Show,” as we develop new ministries and opportunities that will encourage and support our new church family.


Our priorities are:

 

      To walk with others in making their commitment to Jesus Christ


To understanding of the Word of Scripture


To grow in our devotion and prayer life

  

      To participate in small groups and team ministires


To serve in outward mission
