About Us

Who We Are

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself." -Luke 10:27, NRSV

We are a congregation of diverse ages, backgrounds, stories and views (both political and theological) that together are seeking to love God and love our neighbors in Laramie and beyond. We see our diversity as a sign of the Holy Spirit's many gifts and a strength of our congregation.

In the original Methodist movement, John Wesley sought to unite the diverse aspects of Christian expression - personal piety with social justice, critical thinking with heart-centered devotion - into a full and vibrant faith. As a congregation, we bring this tradition with us into a 21st century context.

We see our church as one community of faith cooperating with many others (both United Methodist and ecumenically) in the work of God's Kingdom in Laramie and across the world to spread the good news of God's saving love through Jesus Christ.
