Discipleship


18 Then Jesus came to them and said,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with youalways, to the very end of the age.” This is the direction as given in Matthew 28:18-20 (New International Version (NIV)). We are commissioned to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Find God, Know God, Share God

The people of the La Crescent UMC work hard to learn and serve within small groups within the church. We also support missions locally and in the US and around the world.
