The mission of the United Methodist Church is"to make disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world."
Welcome to Seabold United Methodist Church! It is my sincere desire that those who worship with us feel the warmth of God's Spirit, and be encouraged and strengthened in our faith in Jesus Christ as we worship God together. As the pastor, I welcome all who come to our community of faith, for we are a diverse congregation, which focuses on the central beliefs of the Christian faith. We combine knowledge and faith in supporting members’ choices in their Christian journey through life. We embrace diversity as we seek to maintain a unity of loving fellowship. As a congregation we are called to serve our community and world, believing we are called to make a difference. Our worship is blended, combining traditional aspects of worship with new expressions in the worship arts. Seabold is a church family where we belong, finding friendship and connection with others in our spiritual journey. I invite you to come to our worship services and see if this might be a place you want to call your church home. Cheryl Wuensch, Pastor
