Navigating the myriad of information regarding the people, places, and particulars of Christ UMC can be confusing and overwhelming but God’s grace keeps faith simple. You have made the first step and we want to help make the next steps to finding out more about God, our church, and our congregation easier for you.
We believe that God made us for community and that connection to others that are walking the same path provides hope and love, encouragement and affirmation, purpose and growth. Whether you are just beginning this journey of faith or are a seasoned traveler within the Christian community, our goal is to walk with you and help you find places and people that will encourage you and enrich you along the path and allow you to do the same for others as well.
On any given Sunday, you can find Missy Holloway, Director of Connection Ministries, as well as other church members, available to meet you and answer any questions you may have in our Connection Center, located off of the main Narthex outside of the Sanctuary worship service. She can be reached email or by telephone at 979-690-4673 ext 109 to answer any questions or just to talk to you about our church and how we might help you to make this a place for worship, community, and outreach.
Meeting with the Pastor
We hold a “meeting with the pastor” quarterly to allow visitors a chance to come together with others to meet our pastors and staff personally, ask any questions you may have, and at your choice, take the opportunity to make a profession of faith or join by transfer from another church to become a part of our congregation. You may also join our church following any worship service or by making arrangements with Missy for a time that is convenient for you.
We are also available for a campus tour to help you navigate “what goes on where” and acquaint you with some of the special places that God uses in our buildings and surroundings to work and grow with Him.
The good news is that a church our size has many ways for our congregation to make personal connections, study God’s word together, pray singularly or together, and serve each other and our community. God has given each of us needs and talents unique to each one individually, and Connection Ministries hopes to help bridge the gap between a description on paper and actually meeting someone in a group or ministry of interest to you. Our website and Connection Center have written information about all that goes on at Christ UMC and any upcoming events that you may want to attend.
When you become a member of our church, you will be given an opportunity to let us know what areas interest you and we will work to have someone contact you to help you become a part of their group or ministry. Of course, no invitation is necessary to become a part of a small group or service opportunity and everyone is welcome to just “show up”.
Any time Steps:
Nothing opens our hearts like service to others and the Connection Ministries is always in need of members to serve as greeters, cookie and bread bakers, Connection Center and Information Desk hosts during all services and special events. All that is required is an open heart and ready smile to help make everyone who steps through our doors feel welcome and needed. Missy Holloway can help you find a time and date that works well for you – an easy way to meet fellow members and visitors.
If you are interested in learning more about Christ UMC or have any questions, please complete this contact form and we will respond as soon as possible. Until we can meet face-to-face, please know that we believe God brought you to this place for a purpose and we pray for you and hope to meet you in person soon!
