“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20a spells out the task of this mission. We seek to fulfill that mission by becoming an ‘inviting, welcoming, nurturing, and serving community of Christ.’ We invite you to join us in that endeavor. We eagerly wait to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

    New Memorial Tree

    A beautiful new flowering crabapple tree has been planted in the front of the church in loving memory of Ella Mailand.
    Ella was a dedicated member of Court Street UMC. She loved life and always had a hug for her many friends. Her faith and smile never wavered during her long illness.
