Our Story

First, we are members of the United Methodist Church. Our mission is to, “Make disciples of Jesus Christ, for the transformation of the world.” 

To accomplish the mission, Ponder UMC has a vision. “At Ponder UMC people find wholeness, hope, healing, comfort, and friendship as we partner together with the Holy Spirit in opening our doors, as well as our hearts, to each other and our community. This is how we promote discipleship in our Lord, Jesus Christ.”  

What if I’m not Methodist? Funny you should ask that. Most of our worshipers started out somewhere else. Only a very few are lifelong Methodists. Not being Methodist will have no impact on your worship experience. You can participate in EVERYTHING we do (yes, that includes Communion). Beyond worship there are only a few limitations. You cannot serve on the Finance committee or the Staff Parish Relations committee. You are free to join any other worship or service team that we have.
