Welcome to Roberta UMC
As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.
Roberta United Methodist Church has served our community for more than One Hundred years. In that time, her doors have been opened to many. Some folks leave our small country Church with her beautiful stained-glass windows, but over time many of those folks find their way back to the open arms of those of us that call Roberta home. Still surrounded by cow pastures and beautiful farms, our Church families have seen growth in the form of new neighborhoods popping up around us, and even a new Middle School! We are growing and we welcome friends and new neighbors to join us. We laugh, we cry, we hug and we pray, and in doing so, we've formed a family here at Roberta. Feel the warmth and know you are loved.
CHURCH CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE WHEN:
We choose to live our faith in ways that create real and lasting change in the world.
We open hearts, open minds, and open doors to transform the lives of others.
We put our beliefs into action.
THE CONCEPT OF RETHINKING CHURCH ISN'T NEW.
It's rooted in our Wesleyan heritage.
It's defined by our social principles.
It's part of what makes United Methodists unique.
TO BE UNITED METHODIST IS TO BE INCLUDED IN A DIVERSE, WORLDWIDE COMMUNITY OF CONNECTED CHURCHES BOUND BY FAITH AND SERVICE TO THE WORLD.
Reaching from the local church to neighboring communities and all around the globe, United Methodists share a mutually determined common mission. By working together, we accomplish more. A web of local churches with a global scope, we seek out opportunities to transform lives.
WE EXPRESS OUR LOVE FOR GOD THROUGH ACTIVE DISCIPLESHIP.
To us, church is about sharing God's love by offering hope and healing to those looking for more meaning in their lives. Acts of personal faith and public worship help us grow closer to God, but we also grow in our faith by taking action outside the church walls to help others.
Christ and His earliest followers reached out to those in need, caring for the sick and abandoned when others turned away. Like Him, we are drawn to help those suffering from hunger, disease, or injustice. Those recovering from disaster. Those in need of education, clean water, or simply someone to let them know they are not alone. We seek to live our faith in ways that create change in the world.
ALL ARE WELCOME IN THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
WITH OPEN HEARTS, OPEN MINDS, AND OPEN DOORS.
We believe God's grace is available to all people, no matter where you're from, what you look like, or who you love. That's why our communion table is open to all.
