Welcome to Mattis Avenue Free Methodist Church!

At Mattis Avenue Free Methodist Church we worship God, make disciples of Jesus Christ and serve our community and world. Each body of believers is unique, and ours is no exception. On a typical Sunday morning, we have a wide variety of friends in attendance. You'll find longtime members sitting next to others who are new to the church- possibly even to the USA! All are welcome. It is our sincere desire to help everyone who connects with us to draw closer to Jesus. 

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

In Christ,

Herb Coates

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, citing the highly transmissible Delta variant, recommend that even fully vaccinated people who live in places with high or substantial transmission of the virus should once again wear masks in public indoor spaces. We have posted the new CDC recommendation, but are not making it a requirement. 

We desire that our church be both a virus-free and a judgment-free place to gather and focus on worshiping our Lord.
