“My hope for the Maywood and Welfleet United Methodist Churches is that we will grow together in our relationship with Christ in a way that we inspire those around us to know Christ also. Our worship services are not “spectator events”, they are an opportunity to actively grow in faith as individuals and as the body of Christ.”, Tammy injected.
