first time here?

what to expect:

Welcome! It is a real joy for us to meet newcomers and to tell you about all the good things God is doing in our church family. For over 130 years here at FUMC Columbia, it has been our mission to love God with everything. That means that no matter where you have come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to inspire, equip, and encourage you to live out a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world.

Here's all you need to know before you show up for your first service: Come as you are. Although our time will be taken up by singing, teaching, reading, and praying, you don't need any manual to figure out how to fit in. Jesus simply says: "Come to me" and we say the same. Just come as you are!
