Gather - Grow - Give - Go... with Gratitude!


Gather - Grow - Give - Go

The mission of the local church is making disciples of Jesus Christ.  This sounds simple, but it involves a wide range of ministries that seek to express our love of God through love of neighbor.  It encompasses the spiritual journey from brith and baptism to death and resurrection.  It is all about discipleship:  the adventure and challenge for a life-time.  Our "short-hand" or JFUMC way of living out the mission of the local church is expressed in our slogan:  GATHER - GROW - GIVE - GO.

Because being a Christian means being a member of a community of believers that cares for one another and serves others, we gather often and for many reasons.  We gather regularly for worship and service as well as for food, fun and fellowship.  Sometimes we actually do all of those things at the same time!

We invite you to learn more about us by reading about our history, getting to know our staff , and joining us as we gather for worship here at JFUMC.  If you are musically inclined, we invite you to check out our music ministries.  As you continue on your journey of faith, we invite you to grow in discipleship by participation in educational programs and  opportunities to give and go.

to get driving directions.

Jonesboro First United Methodist Church is located in the Griffin District of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church.  The United Methodist Church (UMC) is a world-wide connection.  This means that this local congregation is actively involved in mission and ministry around the globe as well as in our local community.  This also means that the discipleship resources of the UMC are available to the local church.
