MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR
Welcome to our church! Whether you’re just checking us out on the web or visiting us in person we’re glad you’re interested. Let’s face it, looking for a church can be scary. You don’t know what the people are like, what to wear, what their beliefs are, what the worship service will be like, or if you can find a way to fit in with everyone. Perhaps it’s been a long time since you were involved with church. Maybe there’s something in your life that you think would make you unwelcome in church, so you’ve stopped looking.
We understand that. You are wanted and welcomed here at Ragland United Methodist Church, just as you are. We focus on giving God’s grace to everyone. It doesn’t matter where you are in life, it matters where you’re trying to go with God. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, it matters what you’re trying to do. If you’re looking for a congregation that will welcome you in, show you the love Christ showed to others, teach you about Christian faith, and help you transform into being the person God intended you to be then please come try us. Give us a chance to get to know you, and give yourself the chance to get to know us. You will find a welcoming place to worship God and a loving group of believers that you can be a part of.
If you have any questions I’d love to sit down with you and talk. Please see the "contact" button to email me.
Bro. Ben Vernon, Senior Pastor
We’re a very friendly, loving, accepting and caring church! We have a heart for the unchurched and those who feel far removed from God. Our focus is on sharing God’s grace in a nonjudgmental way just as Jesus did. Our distinctive understanding of God’s saving grace is seen in the way we live our faith. You don’t have to be perfect to be wanted and welcomed here!
We recognize that there are varying degrees of faith and that people grow at their own pace as they are awakened by and respond to God’s grace. We look to the renewing work of the Holy Spirit building us as a community of faith. The church takes its role as a nurturing center for each person’s growth in faith seriously, and there are many opportunities to learn.
There’s always something going on at Ragland United Methodist Church. There are many opportunities for you to join in ministry and make a difference. From the young to the young at heart there's a place for you here! We invite you to come be a part of something special!
