Jesus loves you
We are glad you have visited our website. The Elk City-Havana Parish of the United Methodist Church welcomes you to explore the information on this site and invites you to visit one or both of our loving small family churches. Each of our congregations is just a group of very imperfect people who are seeking to discover more of what God and His plans for us can mean to our lives. We believe that loving one another and supporting one another is an important part of being “Church.” We believe you will find the atmosphere at our worship services both caring and inspirational. It is our desire to speak directly to life as it is and to live out our three point mission to grow in our faith. We don’t push our faith on anyone. We feel the New Testament calls us to love, share, and to invite people to what Christ offers. We don’t believe that includes arm twisting, extreme emotionalism, or bugging someone. We are of the mind that there are also many ways of looking at things and that people do not have to all believe exactly the same way to share in the same church home. We believe that being honest and searching for answers to difficult life questions is a part of the Christian faith. That’s the reason the United Methodist slogan is “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.” Most of all we want you to know that God loves you and that we would be delighted to have you worship among us. Hope to see you on Sunday!
is to be a church that is:
Grounded in the Word
Rooted in Fellowship, and
Commissioned for Service
At the Elk City-Havana United Methodist Churches we are passionate about making disciples (followers) of Jesus. We believe Jesus is God’s Son, who came to earth and died on the cross, then rose from the dead. His sacrifice paid the price for our waywardness from God, so that now we can accept God’s free gift of forgiveness and eternal life. Growing in faith means discovering all the ways our trust in Jesus shapes daily living. Every event and activity in our parish is structured around three simple movements in our mission to help us all to grow in faith:
1. Grounded in the Word: We learn about God and our relationship with Him when we faithfully attend worship services, earnestly worship God, and commit to personal daily reading and study of the Bible.
2. Rooted in Fellowship: Sunday School and small groups are a great place to ask questions, share our struggles and hurts, make some new friends, and discuss how concepts are put into action. Prayer support and church fellowship events help us grow in community.
3. Commissioned for Service: Filled with God’s grace we intentionally share our faith and invite others to Christ and the Church. God’s love compels us to minister locally to those in need, support global mission projects, and give generously through our tithes, talents, and time.
We invite to join our mailing list and receive emails we send out with news, or with special worship or program schedules.
