Our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ takes many forms at First United Methodist Church. We try to simplify by CONNECTING people to God and each other, EQUIPPING ourselves through scripture, conversation and study, along with SENDING ourselves in mission. Even these three things get a little confusing at times.
Therefore, we have a journey statement that keeps us focused on moving forward. That statement is “WE FEED PEOPLE.” Over the last several years we, as a church, have committed to working with our neighbor churches, and the community to fight food insecurity. We provide free food in as many places to as many people as possible.
Prairie Grove is a wonderful community. It has an active group of helpful citizens, beautiful parks, and multiple churches to choose from. It’s no surprise that our little community is growing by leaps and bounds. Who wouldn’t want to live here?
With so many newcomers to the area, I thought I would do an article on our ministries. After all, one of the key benefits of living here is that there is so much to do, but it can be hard to know where to start. As Christians, we believe that we should spend our lives focused on two things: loving God and loving others. And one of the best ways we know how to show love is by getting involved with our neighbors and helping out where we see a need.
If you are new to the area, new to your faith, or a local that is just looking to get more involved, I highly encourage you to start at PGFUMC. We have many opportunities available to become an active participant in helping serve the community and showing love.
Join us as we take a stroll to each of the schools and pray over them and the 2019-2020 school year!
We will meet at 10:30 at the PGHS entrance and make the loop stopping at each location. We will finish back in the HS parking lot. If the weather is bad, the show will go on! We will just drive to each place!
