We’re honored that you’re considering joining us. We have tried to answer some of the questions you may have before you come for a visit.
WHO WE ARE
Our Mission: Loving God, Building Relationships, and Serving the World
Our Vision: Connect People to Jesus and Each Other, Grow Deep & Wide, and Inspire a Spiritual Legacy for All
Our Christ Centered Values: Love, Hope, Compassion, Authenticity, Unity, and Service
So, we extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who have crying new-borns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor who can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion,” we’ve been there too.
If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!

Whether you're brand-new to church or you’ve been around church for a while, we want to say, "Welcome!" Our goal, at Chickasaw United Methodist, is to create environments and experiences where you can encounter God in the midst of your life. We hope that you will be inspired by the worship, encouraged by the message, and feel welcomed by our amazing community of people!
