"Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another."

Our Mission

“As believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ and members of Prospect United Methodist Church, we proclaim through word, faith, and deed our mission to the Kingdom of God. Our purpose and mission is to be an inclusive body that ministers holistically mind, body, and spirit, to all put under our charge. We are commissioned to be the hands and feet of Jesus, empowered by the Spirit to carry out the mission of the church. We are called to proclaim the Word of God to all who will hear and witness to the life changing Grace of God in our everyday living. Finally, we are committed to be intentional in our response as United Methodist to share in the connectional ministry of church.”


Our Motto

love. serve. grow

The bible tells us in 1 John 3:16-18, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”

Everything that we do here at Prospect revolves around our great love for the Lord and our neighbors. God showed us the greatest love when He sent His one and only Son to die on the cross for our sins. We can use this self-less love as an example for how we should love one another. This deep love ignites a passion to SERVE the Lord with all that we have. Through this service, as well as participation in Sunday School, Bible studies, and small groups we are able to GROW in our faith. When spiritual growth happens, love deepens and service increases. Through all of this, glory is given to God.
