Welcome to Mattis Avenue Free Methodist Church!

Here at Mattis Avenue Free Methodist Church, we are seeking to build a community of people being impacted by the Love of God revealed in Jesus, raising up others who also follow that Love in His Spirit for the sake of our neighbors and world.  All are welcome, and we would love to have you join us sometime!  

Anytime we gather, we have a wide variety of friends in attendance.  You’ll find people from all over the US and world who have been following Jesus for many years, and some who are just beginning to understand what that means.  We believe it can be healing to know and be known by one another in the Love found as we draw near to Jesus.  In a world of disconnection and sources of anxiety - we believe He can be a powerful source of relationship and peace.

We hope this site will be a helpful resource to you, and you’ll connect with us in person if you haven’t already.
