We're committed to being the hands and feet of Christ within our community and world. As Christ commanded in Matthew 28:19, "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." At Simpsonwood UMC, we believe that as a Christ-centered church, moving outside the walls of our sanctuary is a non-negotiable. We seek to make Christ known through local and international missions.
