Welcome - from Pastor Brian

Pastor Brian Posey Pastor Brian Posey

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about Grottoes United Methodist Church, and why we would love for you to join us as we live out our faith committed to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

At Grottoes United Methodist Church, we embrace the motto of the United Methodist Church “Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors”.  We are a gathering of Christians who come from many different walks of life, who carry a variety of life experiences, and faith experiences.  Among us are those who are curious about what church is and there are those who have begun to develop a maturing faith in Jesus Christ.  We live, learn, and grow together as we develop and deepen our faith.

At Grottoes United Methodist Church we understand that people learn and grow their faith by a variety of means.  That is why we try to offer diverse opportunities to experience God at work in our lives through Worship, Christian Education, and Spiritual Development.  You can join us in worship, be a part of a small group study or Sunday School class to engage with as you develop relationships within the church community. We are a community that believes in “loving God and loving our neighbor”.  You can join us as we engage in mission opportunities and outreach to our community and around the world. 

Churches are made up of human beings who are not perfect, but God takes our imperfect lives and uses us in glorious ways, when we choose to give ourselves asas disciples of Jesus Christ and become living sacrifices to the glory of God.  I hope you will take the time to check us out on Sunday mornings, and I look forward to getting to know you.

I want to invite you to join us as we live out our mission: “To Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.”  So come as you are, from where ever you are, and just be who you are.  Hope to see you soon.
