FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH OF SNEADS FERRY
We are a parish of committed Christians who are part of the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church. Our congregation is located in the idyllic fishing village of Sneads Ferry, NC. At First United Methodist Church, we strive to place Christ at the center of all we do. We preach Christ. We sing Christ. We worship Christ. Most importantly, we seek to live Christ in our daily living. We invite you to come and live Christ with us. The parish office number is (910) 327-4011. You may call the office at any time, and if you don’t receive an immediate answer, please leave a message. Please feel free to email the pastor or any member of our ministry team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get back with you as soon as possible. If you are ill, in the hospital, in need of counseling or simply wish a pastoral visit, please let the office know or contact the pastor directly. Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to greeting you at First United Methodist Church.
As a United Methodist congregation, we hold our beliefs in common with other parishes within the Methodist tradition. Along with our sister congregations, we are called to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” (The Book of Discipline ¶120). We strive to live out this call within and beyond the community of Sneads Ferry, NC.
At First United Methodist Church, we grow in faith by participating in Christian community. God's grace works within us to deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ and each other through the instruction, nurture, care, and fellowship of the church.
To worship means to serve God. When we worship, we start to become who we were always meant to be. Through song, prayer, praise, liturgy and sacrament. we practice together the patterns of eternity and we are formed as Christian disciples.
