We believe God made us and calls us to live according to HIS WILL and WAY—in harmony with God, with others, with the environment and world around us, and with ourselves. This harmony is contingent on our choice to trust God and live like Jesus—loving God and others. This is the WAY that leads to an active faith, authentic relationships that fulfill us and give us satisfaction and joy, stronger families, and a stronger community for everyone.
Pursuing Excellence – Our God is an awesome God who never settled for mediocrity.
Taking Responsibility – Seizing opportunities to serve and care when they are presented.
Building and Keeping Margins – Being healthy and having room to deal with life in positive ways.
Choosing to Trust – Choosing to believe the best even when we don’t know all the facts.
Humility – Deliberately putting the concerns of others first that we might serve other best.
Alignment – Working together in ways that advance the Kingdom of God and fulfill our purpose of making disciples of Jesus Christ and changing the world.
Worship among ‘people called Methodists’ began in the Stewartstown community around 1820. Our present congregation is the result of many mergers and realignments of Protestant denominations, in particular the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Methodist Protestant Church and the Methodist Church South. Stewartstown United Methodist Church formally began September 15, 1955. Through the years, Stewartstown UMC has believe it has a song to sing, a Light to shine, a story to tell, and a Savior to share.
