In ancient building practices, the cornerstone was the principal stone placed at the corner of the edifice. The cornerstone was usually the largest, the most solid, and the most carefully constructed of any in the edifice. Jesus describes Himself as the Cornerstone that His church would be built upon, a unified body of believers.


Within First United Methodist Church of Spring Hill, the cornerstones of CONNECT, GROW, SERVE, and SHARE are laid upon the Cornerstone of Jesus Christ. They serve as the foundation and infrastructure for the church as well as for individual personal growth. Corporately, the Cornerstones challenge each of us to "reach the world for Christ for the transformation of the world."

 

All of the ministries within the church rest upon one of these cornerstones. All of us together make up the body of Christ and within that body, our gifts and our talents are manifest to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. With that proclamation in mind, we are to go into the world that others have opportunity to hear and that still others might become a part of God's family.


Think of these words as you participate in the programs, ministries, and possibilities within First United Methodist Church of Spring Hill. God bless you as you join all those who serve the Lord in whatever capacity He has placed upon your heart. Be prayerful as you connect, grow, serve and share!

 

The Cornerstones at First United Methodist Church of Spring Hill are intended to help people:

  • CONNECT to God through Worship. "God is Spirit and his people must worship Him in spirit and truth." - John 4:24

    Connect to God through worship is our goal for every person who attends First Spring Hill. This starts in the worship service, where we worship God through music, Biblical teaching and Fellowship.

  • GROW in their faith through Discipleship. This includes Sunday Schools, Bible Studies and Small Groups. "He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ." - Colossians 1:28

    Once a person starts attending First Spring Hill, we will help them grow in their faith through discipleship - Sunday schools, Bible studies, and Small Groups.

  • SERVE others in the name of Christ. "You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather serve one another in love." - Galatians 5:13

    The church is to operate as a body of specially gifted ministers who exercise their spiritual gifts in their area of passion. There are three aspects of this process: serve our members, serve the community, serve in ministry.

  • SHARE their testimonies for the evangelism of the world. "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." - 1 Peter 3:15

    Share testimonies for the evangelism of the world. This means we commit ourselves to taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. Sharing our faith and inviting others to church is how the process continues in a never ending cycle.
