Who We Are

A church family has to be experienced to be known. We want you to experience us, to know us - and we want to know you. By way of introduction, here are some things you might like to know about us:

We are a place of sanctuary, hope and action. We are a family of people who humbly seek to be closer to God. When you come to worship with us, you will experience no claims of perfection and no gatekeepers of God's grace. Each one of us makes our mistakes and asks God's forgiveness. We seek to know God's love in our lives and to have that love overflow us and spill out into the streets of Laurel, and beyond, where there is a world of hurt and emptiness waiting to be filled.

We are connected to the worldwide United Methodist Church, We welcome you with Open Doors, Open Hearts, and Open Minds.

Our Services

What are services like?
Church services bring us closer to God and help bring together a community of faith. As we gather weekly, the scripture we hear and the prayers we say together remind us who God is and of the amazing gifts we have been given. Each service has a different feel, but they all express the joy we experience through our relationship with God and with each other. Sunday Morning Worship 9:00 AM - Traditional Worship Service A quiet and elegant service with traditional hymns and prayers. 10:30 AM - Contemporary Worship w/praise band A robust and spirited service with a praise band playing contemporary Christian music.
