WORSHIP ON THE LAWN
Worship on the Lawn is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the message of God’s love in a casual outdoor setting.
This brief service lasts 20-30 minutes. It’s relaxed and informal, so the dress is relaxed and casual. Feel free to bring family and friends as well as your own comfortable chair or blanket.
Join us this Sunday from 9:00 am – 9:30 am for something new and a little different at Fort Hill United Methodist Church. We look forward to seeing you!
Fort Hill United Methodist Church
The mission of Fort Hill United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. This mission is fulfilled as Fort Hill connects with the Lynchburg community through partnerships in a variety of missions such as REACH (a program of the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank that provides food to low-income, homebound adults in the community), Backpacks for Kids (a program ensuring that children in need of food security at Dearington and Bass Elementary Schools have enough to eat outside school hours), and the Park View Community Mission. Like many of the Christian churches in Lynchburg, VA, we believe in living a life of service. In addition, Fort Hill is a partner in ministry with other congregations of The United Methodist Church in over 100 nations around the world. Guided by the biblical call to love our neighbors as ourselves, Fort Hill seeks to be a mission outpost in the greater Lynchburg area. Grounded in faith since 1899, the Fort Hill congregation seeks to be bold in proclaiming God’s love in today’s world by reaching out and welcoming people in the love of Jesus Christ.
“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.”
– Matthew 28:19
The vision of Fort Hill United Methodist Church is to be grounded in faith, hope, and love as stated in I Corinthians 13:13 (And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three and the greatest of these is love). Our prayer is these values will provide the foundation for how our congregation connects with the Fort Hill and greater Lynchburg community. Called by the vision of faith, hope, and love that Jesus proclaimed we seek to live as a community of faith that makes a lasting difference. In turn, we invite others to live in this vision with us. As one of the oldest and well-established churches in the Lynchburg, VA area, we look forward to sharing the message and love of Christ with you.
