Who are we at Mays Chapel UMC?


We are a family of faith. We are imperfect people. We are beloved children of God. We are all seeking something: a place to belong. Wholeness and fulfillment. Answers to life’s deepest questions. At a certain level, we all understand that something is missing from our lives. We are seeking something that only God can provide. We can only have that emptiness filled, sustained, and nourished through God’s love for us.


The problem is that we don’t have our eyes or ears open. We often miss the signs that God is there, right in front of us. Scripture tells us that we can only see “as if in a mirror dimly.” We only catch a glimpse of God, even though God is all around us. We believe that God is all around us and can be seen in the most surprising places and speaks to us in the most surprising ways


We believe that God is calling us as beloved children to participate in the redemption of the world. We believe that we are created in God’s image so that we might truly be participants or co-creators in the re-creation of the beautiful, creative, energetic, loving world that God intended for us.
