The mission of Jonesboro First UMC is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Achieving our mission involves a wide range of ministries that show our love for God and our neighbors. It encompasses the spiritual journey from birth and baptism to death and resurrection. It is all about discipleship: the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God. Our method 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 us, getting to know our staff, and joining us as we gather for worship. 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 participating in educational programs and opportunities to give and serve.
     Jonesboro First United Methodist Church is located in the Central North District of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. The United Methodist Church (UMC) is a world-wide connection. This means this local congregation is actively involved in mission and ministry around the globe as well as in our local community. It also means that the discipleship resources of the UMC are available to the local church.
