Who We Are

Choctaw UMC map

OUR MISSION: “Inviting you to know, love, and live a life in Christ.”

We glorify. “Glorify” represents our corporate worship and witness. We don’t call attention to what we achieve on our own. Everything we do as a congregation points beyond ourselves and glorifies God, who is the creator and provider of all we do.

We gather. “Gather” represents the fellowship we share with one another. People within the congregation value relationships. Whenever we gather, we experience a sense of belonging, of knowing and being known in Christian community.

We grow. “Grow” represents discipleship. We learn to follow Christ more closely in our daily living. We encourage one another to mature and become more like Christ in the things we say and do.

We give. “Give” represents the ways we serve. We are conduits, not receptacles, for God’s love and mercy. We give of what we have – our time, our abilities, and our resources – to serve others on God’s behalf. The One we worship came not to be served, but to serve.
