Hillsville First United Methodist Church is Re-thinking church. We are in the process of launching a new worship site in Hillsville and it’s all about reaching people who have no connection to a church anywhere. Now, don’t hear that we are not looking for people who are Christian, everyone is welcome. The point is, 78 percent of the population of Carroll County are not attending church anywhere and it is our goal to reach out to those folks who are searching.
We won’t be like any other church. We will be unique while keeping the Bible Message at the center of all that we do.
What if we were to change our perspective?
What if church was less about appearance and more about integrity?
What if church was less about the people on the inside and more about the people outside it’s doors?
What if we cared less about who was wearing a hat in the sanctuary and more about the stories of those wearing them?
What if instead of seeing the Bible as a text book or a history book, we truly saw it as God’s Words of Life?
What if church was less about Sunday and more about the other 6 days of the week?
What if we talked less about our denomination and more about transformation?
What if we talked less about our stuff and more about Jesus?
What if we Re-think Church?
