The First United Methodist Church
of Torrington, Connecticut
What we are about . . .
There are many wonderful churches in our community, and if you are actively attending one of them, we hope you will continue in your faithfulness to that congregation. But, if you do not have a church home, then the congregation at First United Methodist Church may be a place for you.
We are a Welcoming Congregation: We emphasize love and invitation, not condemnation and exclusion. In today's busy world people and families have little time to spare. We make it easy to participate in many forms of ministry offered at First United Methodist.
We are a Growing Congregation: We are growing, not just in numbers, but in spiritual relationships with God. In the anxious times in which we live, we strive for spirituality that overcomes fear and prejudice. We strive to walk closer with Jesus, who promises us life abundant.
We are a Knowing Congregation: Faith is more than believing in a set of rules. It is a surrender to God's unconditional love and forgiveness, knowing that His love will surround us and make us whole. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
We are a Giving Congregation: Faith and action go hand in hand. We don't just preach about Christain values and life. We go forth each Sunday to live it. With integrity and conviction we face each week anew in loving service to God's world.
We are the people of the First United Methodist Church
