WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE .... Velda Rose United Methodist Church is an open and welcoming church.  Together we affirm that through God’s redeeming love, all are one in Christ.  In fact, as we look out among the many different faces that are here on Sunday mornings, the one face that is missing is yours!  It doesn’t matter who you are, what mistakes you have made, how rich or poor you are, indeed, no matter WHO you are--Velda Rose welcomes you home to the family.

OUR MISSION

God calls us to be a courageous church:
Loving like Jesus,
Acting for justice,
And united in hope.
 

OUR VISION

Our vision is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!

WHAT WE DO

  • Seek God. Jesus says the most important thing we can do is love God.  We do this by joining together in delightful worship.
  • Welcome People. Our church welcomes and values all people.  Come as you are, warts and all, and find a place to connect with God and others who are searching.
  • Offer Christ. We believe only the love of Jesus can truly change lives.  Only a relationship with Him allows us to grow fully into the people we were meant to be.  During the week, we meet in classes to study the Bible, ask questions, and form forever friendships.
  • Respond by Serving. We believe that worship should not be confined to the walls of a building.  We want to be the hands of feet of Jesus wherever we are.  We are a church that can be found serving God in places of need in our community and around the world.

THE CROSS & THE FLAME

Represents the United Methodist church to God through Christ(cross) and the Holy Spirit (flame). The flame is a reminder of Pentecost when witnesses were unified by the power of the Holy Spirit and saw “tongues, as of fire” 

WHO ARE UNITED METHODISTS?

Velda Rose United Methodist Church is a “connectional” church, meaning that we are connected to all United Methodist Churches worldwide through mission, ministry, and polity.  We share a common history and heritage with other Methodist and Wesleyan bodies, as well.  The lives and ministries of John Wesley (1703-1791) and of his brother, Charles (1707-1788) mark the origin of our common roots.

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness.  To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

The United Methodist church consists of a wide variety of theological opinion, but Wesley taught that the living core of the Christian faith was revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, vivified in personal experience, and confirmed by reason.
