We welcome you to Providence United Methodist Church. Our mission statement is "Growing Together in God's Grace!"
We see this as an ongoing process of:
+ Connecting people to God and each other through Worship and Fellowship.
+ Equipping disciples for carrying out loving, compassionate ministries of Word and Service.
Providence was established in 1838 in a traditionally rural, agricultural part of the county, just off High Rock Lake. Over the last 20 years, Providence has made a transition from a church made up primarily of long-established families in the neighborhood, to being a regional church for the growing High Rock Lake area. To meet the needs of multiple generations, we offer an early worship service at 8:30 AM, First Light, which has a simplified format, casual dress, and acoustic praise and worship music. We also offer a more traditional service, which includes traditional hymns plus some contemporary paise and worship music. This service has a good amount of informal dress style, with jeans and shorts acceptable, blended with more formal dress styles. For our more traditional service, we offer music from our choir, soloists, and our own Praise Band (made up of brass instruments).
Church can happen anywhere. It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
