LET YOURSELF BLOOM.
Here in the City of Dogwoods the blooms of Spring are a beautiful thing. Here at Abbeville United Methodist we are excited about a different kind of blooming. We (by God's power) grow, heal, transform, empower, lead, love and connect with people.

Beliefs and Actions
The United Methodist Church is committed to putting our faith into action. Check out the United Methodist Handbook to see how this happens!
Life is filled with chances to make a difference. Most times we are so focused on getting through the day that we miss the chances to do something meaningful. So ... how can I connect to something that makes the world better? Glad you asked ... Abbeville UMC has many opportunities to serve God and people through missions, locally, nationally and internationally. We are the mission ...
Belize ... AUMC has an ongoing presence in Belize and makes periodic trips for work, medical and teaching opportunities.
Belize Feeding Program - Through the Path Foundation (John Riley) we provide funds for the feeding of needy children.
Red Bird - One of the poorest parts of our nation is Appalachia. AUMC sends work trips, clothing and love to the Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky.
World Vision - AUMC supports and encourages World Vision kids.
Abbeville 2nd Chance Thrift Store - We operate a local thrift store which funds mission work and ministry of our Youth. Come, shop, volunteer and make a difference
Boys and Girls Club - AUMC is part of the genesis of the Boys and Girls Club of Abbeville opening soon. Help us make a difference! Our club serves over 70 kids, and their collective GPA is 3.3. Also, 50 volunteers (you could be one too) are part of this effort to tell the world, Great Futures Start Here!
Costa Rica - Radical Life Ministries is a dynamic partner in Jaco, Costa Rica. We support the ministry, send support teams and we are building a church ... you can help!
Backpacks for Friday (BFF) - AUMC offers support and funding for this ministry feeding local kids with easy-to-prepare food for weekends.
Celebrate Recovery - Through our missions efforts we fund Celebrate Recovery, a Christian recovery program that meets weekly at AUMC.
The picture above depicts a familiar image of Magi who have followed the star to Bethlehem and to the house of Mary, Joseph and Jesus. They have traveled far through hardship, danger and some nefarious characters. They have offered gifts and praise at the feet of Jesus and now must decide how to process this experience. Will it be another adventure and conquest, another feather in their cap? Will they go and retire to the sidelines having achieved their goal of reaching the Christ child?
God's word says that the Magi, after worshiping Jesus there in Bethlehem, went home by a different way. How has the coming of the Christ child changed you? Will Jesus change you this year, making this year the time and place where your faith begins to grow up? Only you can answer these life-changing questions. Choose wisely!
