Our Mission & Vision
Our MISSION is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
God has given us a VISION of what our church community will look like if we our loyal to his call and the mission he has given us:
By God’s grace, Verona United Methodist Church will shine as a community of living faith in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley - a loving and joyful community that is open to all: forgiving the sinner, encouraging the discouraged, befriending the friendless, and caring for the hurting. In our midst, people of all ages and backgrounds will find common ground in Jesus Christ and a sanctuary from the world’s confusion and hurt where they can grow in the healing knowledge of God and His will.
Our ministries will communicate the good news of Jesus Christ in word and action and nothing we undertake will be done without prayer. When led by God’s Spirit and instructed by Holy Scripture, we will take risks and be willing to sacrifice our familiar ways of doing things, knowing that all things work together for good when we are called by God and are faithful to His mission. Our hearts will be broken by the pain of our neighbors both near and far and we will go in God’s name to serve their needs. In every circumstance we will praise our God whose love never fails.
