why we are here

Ellendale United Methodist Church is here to be the hands, feet, and voice of Christ. Our guiding principal in accomplishing that Purpose comes from Matthew 25:35(GNT) - I was hungry and you fed me. However, in being the hands, feet, and voice of Christ, we truly believe that we must feed much more than the body. To truly meet our mission and be the type of witnesses Christ calls us to be, we must also feed the mind and spirit. We use these words from Matthew to help guide all actions, reminding us to be the hands, feet, and voice of Christ within our church family, our local community, and the larger global community, 



We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Everybody is welcome here whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles. We’re all about doing life together in community, being intentional about our growth as people and serving one another and our broader community along the way.

We want to invite you to one of our Sunday Gatherings to experience our community of Jesus-followers authentically engaging with the God we love!
