Welcome to Forest UMC in Forest, Mississippi
Welcome to the Forest United Methodist Church website. I am glad you chose to spend a few moments looking around, discovering our church family. When I describe FUMC to people, I use words like ‘community’ and ‘family,’ because that is who we are.
We are a Community of Faith. We believe that we are connected. My joys are your joys. Your sorrows are my sorrows. If my journey of faith is going to be the very best it can be, than I need you to be a part of it. We are also a Family. And like any family, though we don’t always agree, we always love. We accept each other as we are, not just as we hope we will one day be. We embrace each other, faults and all.
At Forest United Methodist Church we are committed to Making Disciples and Making a Difference through Jesus Christ in our homes, our communities and our world. Or to put it simply, we are committed to helping each other be the best follower of Christ we can be. And as we become more faithful, more loving, and more grace-filled; we believe that God’s Spirit can transform our families, our neighbors and all of Creation. That means we worship him with vigor and joy. That means we encourage prayer in church and throughout life. That means we love people inside and outside the church for who they are: a precious child of God.
Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed at Forest UMC. And once here, we pray that people will meet God and as a result of meeting God, give their lives to Jesus Christ. We want that for you. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly, we pray that you will encounter the Risen Christ.
While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our programs and get a glimpse of who we are, but only a glimpse. To fully understand us, come to a worship service or to a study or Family Event and feel the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together with the Holy Spirit present. Enjoy the website, then come. We’d love to meet you and know you.
