As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church's life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.
We'd be happy to hear from you. Our office hours are from "Monday - Thursday from 9 AM to 2 PM". Please feel free to call or email, or stop on by during our office hours:
