Since 1903, members of our church have gathered to worship God, nurture spiritual growth, serve those in need, and share warm-hearted fellowship.  Located near Paducah, Kentucky, we invite you to worship, enjoy spiritual growth, and to share these special times with us at Reidland UMC.

 

We seek to be a family of believers in Jesus Christ nurtured and guided by the Holy Spirit to be servants of God for sharing of His grace and to be a supportive community for all those in need.

Visit us and discover boundless opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, along with meaningful ways to make a real difference in your community.   You’ll be greeted with genuine warmth and embraced by a supportive extended family.

The Mission of the Church

Scripture

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

 

Denomination

The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by proclaiming the good news of God’s grace and exemplifying Jesus’ command to love God and neighbor, thus seeking the fulfillment of God’s reign and realm in the world.  The fulfillment of God’s reign and realm in the world is the vision Scripture holds before us.  – ¶ 121 The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church 2012

 

The United Methodist Church affirms that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Lord of all. As we make disciples, we respect persons of all religious faiths and we defend religious freedom for all persons. Jesus’ words in Matthew provide the Church with our mission: “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you” (28:19-20), and “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. . . . You must love your neighbor as you love yourself” (22:37, 39).
