Upper Room Daily Reflections

 

Welcome!

We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Feel free to browse through the various areas to learn more about this special church and its legacy, our commitment to God and each other, and our commitment to the mission of the United Methodist Church. 

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest -- and consider Prospect as your church home and family.

When you visit or join our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation and church family who welcomes you
  • Sermons and ministry that encourage Discipleship and commitment to the UMC mission:  following Jesus, making disciples, and transforming the world
  • Efforts to align with these foundational scriptural mandates and putting beliefs into action
  • Mission work through various church groups

And we like fun, laughter, and food! Thank you for visiting us online and we hope you will choose to visit us at church!

If you are already actively involved, we appreciate all that you do in helping us do God's work for the church, community and beyond! 


Greetings from Pastor Ken...

Please come see and be part of what is possible when we unite to serve God and cause great things to happen.

Prospect is very much alive and committed to "walking the talk" to grow as disciples and to touch others in our church, community and around the world.

For 2019, we adopted two UMC ministry platforms: RethinkChurch and #SeeAllThePeople. Both platforms embrace relationship-building and sharing God's love as the foundation of discipleship. These platforms are also positioned as the vision for our church’s future to Follow Jesus and Make Disciples for Christ to Transform the World.

It is indeed a privilege for Jan and me to be a part of this special church and I invite you to join us on our spiritually fulfilling and rewarding journey.

When God leads you to Prospect, you will always receive a warm welcome. We'll be happy to see you as often as you bless us with your presence! 

If you are looking for a church home and family, we hope you will consider Prospect. 

If you need my pastoral services or someone to talk to, I am easy to reach via either email (kthrasher0253@gmail.com or kenthrasher@vaumc.org)  and by calling the Parsonage at 434-636-4058. If urgent, call my cell at 434-955-0253.
