United Methodists come in all sizes, shapes, colors, dispositions, outlooks and life stories, but share a unique history and faith perspective. Our members speak many languages and live in many countries.

No matter how or where they serve Jesus Christ, United Methodists do God’s work in a unique structure—referred to as “the connection.” This concept has been central to Methodism from its beginning. Connectionalism comes to life through our clergy appointment system, our mission and outreach, and through our collective giving. We live out our call to mission and ministry by engaging in ministry with the poor, combating diseases of poverty by improving health globally, creating new places for new people and renewing existing congregations, and developing principled Christian leaders. No one congregation can do all these ministries, but together—through the power of our connection—we can make a tremendous difference.

Care for the one you love.

As a caregiver for an Alzheimer’s patient, you’re all too familiar with the frustration and heartache that come from trying to stir the memory of someone you love. But when you attend our Alzheimer’s Support Group, you can discuss the challenges you face, meet others with similar experiences, and find solutions that can improve the quality of life for you and your loved one.

Purpose Statement

Our purpose for Children’s Ministry is to share the love of Jesus Christ with all children. To train up children in the way they should go by assisting them in developing a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, worship, prayer, and developing an understanding of God’s Word. “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”-Proverbs 22:6

Vision for Children’s Department

It is our desire:

  • To present children with the truth of Jesus Christ at an early age.
  • To pour the love of Christ into their lives, so that Christ would be real to them.
  • That all children would have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • That the children would be presented the plan of salvation.
  • To help them grow in a closer walk with God, a relationship.
  • To teach children to pray and how to study the Word.
  • To provide the children with an atmosphere that is safe and welcoming to the Holy Spirit.
Heritage Christian Academy provides a loving environment where children can grow spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally.

reaXion Student Ministries strives to encourage 6th grade students through High School Graduates to develop relationships with God through Jesus Christ. That is our number one priority, however, we don’t just stop there! We share Biblical principles and help youth develop their own ideas about contemporary issues facing teens and the Church. We try to encourage faith development and an individual prayer life. We try to help youth develop relationships with each other and other members of our faith community. We lay foundations for a life in service to God and community. We teach individual responsibility, commitment to community, and a life that reflects what we believe…

Walk to Emmaus is an Upper Room program that calls forth and renews Christian discipleship. Like its predecessor, Cursillo de Cristianidad (Spanish for “short course in Christianity”), the Walk to Emmaus is a three-day experience which takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle. It is a highly structured weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them their families, congregations and the world in which they live. Emmaus is a combined effort of laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church.
