Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love. Welcome to our website!  Thank you for visiting  us at Providence United Methodist Church.  

As you surf our web pages, you will learn that we are a church that was founded in the early 1790's. Providence has had 6 different sanctuaries and even a one room school house on the property. (Learn more about our heritage on the Church History page.) You will also find that we are a church moving forward in the name of Jesus Christ. In the past eight years the church has undertaken three major projects: a new parsonage (the first one ever), a 6,300 square foot Family Life Center and a complete renovation of the Church, Education Building and grounds (dedication service March 30, 2008).

Our congregation encourages everyone to dress in whatever manner is comfortable to them and to worship in the style in which they are accustomed (lifting hands in praise or sitting reverently in silence).

Anyone who loves the Lord is welcome no matter from what background they come. Feel free to come and visit us anytime. And if you live in the Forest City area and are looking for a good church home, why not come and see for yourself if Providence is the place for you. We believe you will find our church to be a congregation in which you are always welcome! 

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who has the answer, not only for the problems in our world, but to the personal problems and challenges we face! There is hope for all who turn their hearts and minds in the direction of the cross. There is purpose for living when we encounter God�s love, build our lives on the principles given to us by the Jesus Christ and allow His Word to transform us.

Furthermore we do believe that in Jesus Christ there is forgiveness, peace, purpose, and power for living in the midst of the many questions we face! We invite you to come and journey with us as we worship God, follow Jesus, serve others, and transform the world around us. Make plans to visit Providence United Methodist Church this Sunday. You will be glad you did!

Grace & Peace

Cathy Turman, Minister
Providence United Methodist Church
