Everything You Want To Know About Us

We would love for you to visit us and decide to stay, but you may want to know more about us first. So, we’ve tried to provide as much information here as we can so that you can prepare for a visit.

First Steps
Review the information on this page;
Watch a recent service on Facebook;
Look at some of the comments on Facebook; Check out our newsletters; and then
Try to imagine yourself here at Lisbon UMC.

Do you see yourself here?

There are several other Methodist churches and churches of other denominations in the area. Consider them, too. As much as we want you here, that’s not the real goal. Where do feel comfortable? Do people seem friendly? Do the service and more importantly the message resonate with you? Those things are important to feeling the Lord’s spirit.

Then there are there things you might be interested in being involved with: choir, bible study, events, or charitable works in the community. Great ways to help out and meet folks.

You likely won’t know until you visit Lisbon to attend a service, an event,  a bible study or whatever; so, we can help get you ready for a visit. Please ask questions along the way, too. If you decide to visit, fill out a Connect Card to let us know you’re coming or just show up. That’s fine, too.

Getting here:
