Who We Are:
We are a small United Methodist Church near the Jackson International Airport in Flowood, Mississippi. We are an intimate, warm and friendly group that is committed to studying and living out the word of God. We are a growing church, perhaps not in numbers but growing in our love and understanding of God. We welcome all independent of where you are in your walk.
Worship includes singing a variety of hymns from a variety of hymnals, sharing and prayer, children's message and a sermon based on the lectionary. We have Holy Communion served on first Sundays of the month. There is typcially a responsive reading on second Sundays. And on the last Sunday of the month we emphasize congregational singing by letting the participants pick the songs.
