Our Mission

Do Justice, Practice Kindness, Walk Humbly With GodHe has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?

Micah 6:8 (New Revised Standard Version)

Do justice,  love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.

We Do Justice Our faith community shares the Good News of the Gospel with all. Especially those who are ostracized by society and other faith communities.  We educate ourselves about injustice, and recognize our own areas of privilege, so we can better relate to communities in need. Through advocacy and direct action, we work to change systems.  In addition, we respond to particular needs through ministries of prayer, service, and financial support.

We Practice Kindness It is our core belief that all people are beloved children of God.  In Central United Methodist, we create an atmosphere of love, respect, and compassion for all.  And our practice of kindness empowers us to reach outside our church walls to everyone around us.

We Walk Humbly with God Our faith community centers us towards a personal relationship with God.  We support each other in developing a spiritual life through worship, prayer, study groups, and retreats.  We encourage daily prayer, weekly Sabbath, frequent sharing of experiences of God and regular fasting.  By connecting to God, we are drawn closer to one another and are inspired to share the Good News of the Gospel.
