ABOUT US

Christ is revealed at Round Hill United Methodist Church in powerful ways. First, God can be seen through the history of this church. We have inherited a legacy of outreach, sacrifice and vision. Secondly, we enjoy a spirit of love and commitment. The vitality of our church is due to Christ dwelling in the hearts and souls of all who minister here. The passion and the spirit of this congregation is drawing those who seek to know God through Christ. Finally, God is in the future of this church, community of faith. God’s hand has put together all the pieces that make possible the vision of growing a congregation. God is in our future as surely as God is with us now and has been with us in the past. Our vision is all about sharing God …. sharing our faith … sharing the future.

 

We look forward to continuing to develop new and exciting ways to individually and corporately experience the love of God. You are all invited to come and take “Another Step on Your Journey of Faith.” We have “Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors.”

Being a part of the story of God is both a privilege and a responsibility. Now is the time for us to honor the past, live the present to the fullest, and share in developing an abundant future for all.
