About Us

Who we are

We are a warm and friendly congregation of many ages and walks of life.  We are affiliated with the Global Methodist Movement; which is a conservative evangelical Christ centered, biblically based, Bible believing, Jesus loving, Spirit filled, movement of God.  We are a small-town rural congregation.  Most of our people live within the Lowville/Wattsburg area, although some travel from Erie, Millcreek, North East, Corry, Findley Lake and Union City.  We are a family of believers in Jesus within the Wesleyan theological branch of the Christian family tree.  We are a church family that is growing which includes younger families with younger children. (We don’t mind at all when babies cry or make noise during worship.  We are a group followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, who are growing together in faith and in love with Jesus and with one another.  Come visit us and expect to be made to feel you are one of the family, as we worship our God with real and passionate worship, biblical teaching and preaching, and heartfelt fellowship and friendship.
