The Mission of Wilkes Blvd UMC is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.
We attempt to fulfill this mission through embodying our WELCOME STATEMENT, our VISION STATEMENT, and our CONGREGATIONAL VALUES.
No matter who you are, or what you've done, you are welcome here. Every Sunday morning the worship service begins with the unison reading of our statement that extends WELCOME IN THE NAME OF CHRIST TO ALL REGARDLESS OF RACE, ETHNICITY, GENDER IDENTITY, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, ECONOMIC SITUATION, AGE, ABILITY, BACKGROUND OR BELIEF, WHETHER YOU ARE SINGLE OR PARTNERED, YOU ARE WELCOME... at Wilkes Blvd UMC!
The vision statement of Wilkes Blvd UMC is GROWING TOGETHER IN FAITH THROUGH SERVICE. This is the particular and unique method we use to fulfill our mission. Our faith is understood, expressed, and strengthened through our SERVICE to our siblings and neighbors experiencing homelessness. Through various services, being in ministry with the deeply impoverished and those experiencing homelessness is the primary identity of this congregation.
Our values serve as our compass as we check each individual activity in the life of our church against these five points: PRAY, BE REAL, BE RESPECTFUL, WORK ON IT, CHANGE THE WORLD. If anything doesn't begin with all five, or result in all five, we don't do that thing!
