Welcome to New Life UMC!

Go away!

What would you do if you read that on a doormat when you came to the front door of a home? I’ll tell you what I would do…I would go away. That would be a clear announcement that I or any visitor was not welcome.

Unfortunately, too many churches seem to have that doormat on the front porch of their churches (it’s invisible by the way). We are comfortable with the people that attend our churches but we aren’t that interested in bringing in new folks. Sure, we’ll be glad to take your offerings, but we’re not sure we want to adapt to or deal with your needs.

New Life United Methodist Church strives to break that unwelcoming attitude with a church slogan (and philosophy) of “A Church That Loves!” We love God, we love one another and we strive to love those who are outside of our church family. No, we aren’t the only church with that attribute, there are many, but we want to be yours! If you live locally or are visiting our beautiful region, why not stop in to say hi and stay for worship and “the best free coffee in town!”
