“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.

Does your child struggle with school work? Could you use some extra help teaching your child math (or science, or reading, etc.)? Help is on the way! Court Street UMC is offering FREE tutoring for those students in grades K-8 who need a little extra help with their homework. Relying on the assistance of local college students preparing to become teachers through an internship program and donations of supplies, your child can get the help he/she needs to pass their courses. Contact the Church Office (815-962-6061) to register your child today. OR if you would like to volunteer to help with the tutoring, please contact the Church Office and ask for Nate.
