Pastor's Page

Rev. ThomasWhat says "welcome" to you? Is it a warm greeting, a handshake, a hug? Maybe it's the smell of coffee brewing and some homemade treats in the oven, and a chair all ready for you at the table. Perhaps it's as simple as someone speaking your name, with a smile in their voice.

Whatever it is that helps you to feel welcome, I think you'll find it at Magnolia United Methodist Church. We're a friendly congregation that knows how to make a visitor feel right at home. From that first smile in the narthex, to the lively singing and the shared joys and concerns, to the coffee and goodies after worship in our Fellowship Hall, Magnolia is a church that speaks God's welcome to all.

Bring your children – they'll all enjoy a special children's message during worship. We have a heart for little kids at MUMC - Miss Alana, our "Nest" (nursery) supervisor and educational director, is waiting to get to know them! Older kids will receive their own worship bulletins and are invited to join us for inter-generational worship in our Sanctuary.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you in Christ's name to Magnolia – a church where you can find a home. It's from our home that God sends us out into ministry - so get ready!

May you know the deep peace of Jesus Christ,
