Our Story

Serving the  Community

The congregation at the Port Gibson UMC is a group of faithful people who know God’s love.  As the “Shining Light” in our community, we want to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with our family, friends and neighbors,  and anyone else willing to listen.   As Matthew 5:14-16 tells us,

 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (NIV, 1984)

 God’s gift of mercy and grace is available to each one of us.  As children of God, we enjoy salvation by His grace, through His Son, Jesus Christ. Together, we will work in Christian love, encouraging each other to grow in Christ, and taking the Good News of the Gospel to our friends, neighbors and our community.  Please join us as we experience God’s grace and grow in knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
