 Love God, Love Neighbor, Serve the World

Open Hearts
This church is a loving church. 
People who drop by for the first time are
made to feel like family. 
There is a lot of loneliness in today's world. 
Here, you can find real community.
Open Minds
Jesus often taught with stories. 
He continues to challenge us to use our
minds without losing our imagination. 
We still sense His spirit guiding us to be more
accepting and tolerant of others.  
We also value deeply the Bible
and take time to study it together.

Open Doors
For Vandergrift First United Methodist Church,
this means reaching out in love to our neighbors
through programs like our children's program, 
Vacation Bible School, etc.   It means being there
for all who need us and reaching out to the lost. 
And it means opening our doors wide -- all the time.
