Love God.........Serve Others
We are a church family committed to sharing the love of God through Jesus. Sunday worship times are 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Our 9:00 AM Jubilee service is a blend of contemporary Christian music, prayer and time in the Bible. Our 11:00 AM Traditional service is a blend of great church music, a celebration of our heritage and time in the Bible.
We are commissioned by God to serve others as we help meet the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors and community.
We will grow in our faith and trust in God through small groups of study, prayer and encouragement.
The life of Jesus as defined by the Gospels is our guide for right living, moral decisions, and compassion for others.
We will walk alongside one another celebrating life’s joys and supporting each other in its sorrows so that we may trust one another and be strengthened as the body of Christ.

Nickels for Nigeria
Almost 100 children in Nigeria face futures that are more hopeful today because United Methodists in the Nebraska Conference committed 14 years ago to improve the lives of the poorest of the poor children in Africa.
The Jalingo UMC Orphanage (#3021070) in northeastern Nigeria is one result of a partnership formed in 1999 between the Nigeria Episcopal Area and the Nebraska Conference. It grew out of the United Methodist Council of Bishops' Hope for the Children of Africa initiative.
The orphanage in Jalingo, a city of about 118,000 people, opened in 2005 with 28 children who had lost their parents. Today it is home to 98 students, ranging in age from infant to 17 years old.
The residents came from far eastern Nigeria. Their parents likely died from one of the six most common causes of death in that region: snake bites, car accidents, malaria, HIV/AIDS, home accidents and liver disease. Other relatives became their guardians, but with limited resources, the children had little hope for a good education.
"The orphanage is also a school, and many of these kids weren't able to go to school and didn't really get three meals a day," said Dorothy Halvorsen, a Nebraska laywoman who chairs the Nigeria-Nebraska Partnership. "They get three really good meals a day (at Jalingo). They live in a family kind of atmosphere."
The younger Jalingo residents attend school at the orphanage, while the older residents go to a junior secondary school nearby.
