Virtual Vacation Bible School is here!

Thanks for joining us for what is sure to be a fun, faith-filled adventure! We are so glad you have decided to participate in our first-ever virtual VBS! At Rocky Railway, kids explore Jesus’ power in them and how we can trust Jesus—not our own strength—to pull us through life’s challenges. COVID-19 has come through our lives like a freight train and derailed countless plans, routines, and expectations. This summer, more than ever, the Bible points for Rocky Railway are so relevant. We all need to trust Jesus’ power to pull us through these unprecedented times.

A pastoral letter was released on June 8, 2020 with current updates on the status of the church and it’s ministries for Summer 2020. Please click here to view the letter.

WORSHIP ONLINE WITH US.  Beginning March 22 join us online for worship!  At this time we will hold one service at 10:00 AM.  We invite you to stay at home! Here is the link:  www.facebook.com/108329567465372/videos/ 

Each worship will be a full service, conducted by a team of 6-8.  There will be opportunities to sing, pray, listen and serve.  If you have children, invite them to participate as well.

So grab your cup of coffee, your Bible and expect to find God’s presence with us this week.  God’s church is alive, well and re-imagined!

Head on over to our COVID-19 UPDATES tab to find more information on all of our ministries online offerings.

NORTH LIBERTY FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH POSITION STATEMENT ON THE 2019 GENERAL CONFERENCE 
TRADITIONAL PLAN DECISION 
This is The Position Statement that was passed by church vote on January 26th, 2020.
” North Liberty First United Methodist Church is a gathering of individuals from a diverse and evolving community with varied backgrounds and lifestyles. We recognize the abundance of God’s amazing grace and that all of us have unique gifts and relationships with God. We believe and affirm that all human beings are individuals of sacred worth, created equally in God’s image. We strive to recognize God in everyone. Therefore, we welcome everyone to be fully included in the life of our church. 
Our faith calls us to support all who seek the blessings Christ makes available. It is why we, the members of North Liberty First United Methodist Church, reject the 2019 United Methodist Church General Conference decision to adopt the doctrine known as the Traditional Plan. It is why we affirm lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning persons, including those choosing to marry before God, choosing to preside over the weddings, serving as United Methodist clergy or serving in church leadership. 
Our faith calls us to be driven by compassion, mercy and the love of Christ. We are the hands and feet of Christ, serving each other and letting our actions speak loud and clear in North Liberty, in God’s church and in God’s world. We support each other in our journey of faith and encourage one another to reach beyond our comfort zones to follow and invite others to follow Jesus Christ. 
All are welcome in our church. 
Our Mission Statement: To follow and invite others to follow Jesus Christ.”
