Our Vision Statement:
FaithBridge UMC is called to be...
A church that is all about bridging RELATIONSHIPS... Relating people to God and to each other, through the love given in Jesus Christ.
A community where HOSPITALITY is intentional... Where all are welcomed, because Christ first welcomed us, Where those who are not connected with the Church can join with those who are, Where all discover unconditional love, true joy, abundant life, and the living Lord, Where God's little ones and the "least of these" are given our priority, including children, youth, and those with heavy burdens and broken lives.
A body of Christ that invests in DISCIPLES... Celebrating God's presence in worship and fellowship, Caring and discipling in small groups, Sending out ministers to serve according to their Spiritual passions and gifts.
FaithBridge is a year-round United Methodist congregation in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. We seek to be a bridge to faith for those who are burned out on church, disillusioned by "organized religion", and have tough faith questions. Everything we do is aimed at connecting people with God and with other believers in authentic ways.
The core group of FaithBridge UMC began meeting together, listening for God's vision for us, and planning in late June of 2002. We met at first in the home (garage, actually!) of one of our members, and now we are meeting at our new building at 196 Aho Road in Blowing Rock (directions).
We worship on Sunday mornings at 11am. Dress for our worship services is casual, and our style is informal and nontraditional. Child care is provided for all ages of children each Sunday. If you have any questions, call our church office at 828-295-8333.
We also sponsor Small Groups for adults throughout the week and Christian Education and Growth activities for youth and children on an ongoing basis. To learn more about our Small Group opportunities for all ages, click here.
