How We Grow at Topeka First UMC
Topeka First United Methodist Church's mission is to make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
We are a community of Jesus followers who connect, grow and serve for the good of the city. Seeking to grow in God's love, we have established five rhythms of life that help us fulfill our call as followers of Jesus:
We commit to worship together to connect with God and our community
We commit to engaging in group life where we are encouraged in our relationships with God and others.
We commit to live as generous givers.
We commit to live as servants of God.
We commit to live as dedicated story-tellers sharing what God is doing in our lives with others.
You are invited to find a place in this community of faith so that as we journey together we may live our lives in such a way that all who see us might want to know our God.
