New to Mt Pocono UMC? Start here

I am so glad you are visiting the Mt.Pocono United Methodist Church website.  
We are a family of people from diverse backgrounds that believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and strive to apply his principles in our lives.  Mt. Pocono UMC is a place of spiritual and loving relationships, ministries, and resources and support for each other in this journey called faith. We are a church without walls, that means we are building relationships in the church and outside the church working in our communities and supporting missions around the world.
Whether you are a seasoned Christian or someone who is seeking to explore your faith, our doors are wide open to you. We'll be happy to welcome and support you in any way we can to help you discover God in your life.
I hope that you will take a few moments of your time to check out our website, and I pray you find it helpful. I want to extend a personal invitation to you to come through our doors and worship with us on any Sunday so we can get to know you better.
Once again, thank you so much for visiting us on our website.
Wishing you God's blessings!
