We live in a community rich in cultural diversity. As a church, we want to reflect the heritage of many lands. For that reason, we have held a Filipino prayer service following Taiphoon Haian, offered annual New Year’s Blessings in the tradition of India, invited an author, Margaret Zhao, to speak about her life in China, and conducted services featuring the cultures of the Philippines and India. We often use songs in different languages and have international brunches. Our Book-a-Month Club has discussed books about Afghanistan, China, and Israel-Palestine. Our Interfaith Awareness and Wider Welcome Groups work at cultural inclusiveness in every way they can. The United Methodist Church is a global denomination, growing in numbers in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
We invite you, people of all faiths and all ethnicities, to participate in the life of our church!
