Founded in 1845, this congregation has served the heart of Lansing for generations with devoted worship, prophetic preaching, and passionate service. Our task is the shared mission of the United Methodist Church worldwide: “To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” For us, that means following Jesus. God was born, crucified, and has risen for us—that we might be builders of God’s dream for the world. That dream is a world of peace and reconciliation that Christ can bring. It is a world in Christ where there is sharing of abundance with the poor and a place in Christ where there is dignity for all people. God’s dream for the world includes a future with Christ, who is our hope for the future for  the world. In Christ, God’s love is shown. In our life together as his church, God’s love is known. Come, be a part of the heart of Christ in the heart of Lansing and be builders of God’s dream with us.
