As part of God's family, the people of Merrick UMC seek to be an inclusive Christ-like community and to share the good news of God's love and forgiveness.
We are dedicated to the spiritual growth of all persons and a faithful witness to the power of the Holy Spirit through worship, prayer and compassionate ministry.
- Welcoming all people and reaching out to the community by inviting new people and groups into our church family.
- Taking time to understand other people to help us accept and affirm each other.
- Learning about the issues behind and working for peace and justice on earth.
- Sharing financial resources by bringing offerings for local and world mission.
That together we would practice respect, care for one another, and demonstrate a sense of team as we strive for the good of the Church which is the Body of Christ.
