Ministry and Programs


“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” – Acts 2:46-47

Fellowship and Small Groups

Fellowship and small groups are a great way to be challenged and encouraged in your spiritual journey. Swansboro UMC has opportunities for youth and adults on various days throughout the week to explore the Bible and faith in everyday life through building relationships. Adult groups cover a wide variety of options, including book discussions, topics such as marriage and parenting, as well as various Bible studies. Small groups can last from six weeks to several months.

Mission & Outreach

Swansboro UMC has a call to love God and love our neighbor as we do ourselves. Jesus defines this for us in both who our neighbor is, from near to far and friend to enemy, as well as giving us a practical example which can be followed. Such a mission is so much more than just projects. The mission of God is a defining call of every church and every Methodist Christian. Mission is a way of a congregation being the Body of Christ in a community. It continues to be an exciting, dynamic, every day adventure for a congregation to follow Jesus, rely upon the Holy Spirit, and join in with the new creation of God’s Kingdom. In a congregation, we have the great joy of encouraging both individuals and the church in this opportunity.

Sunday School

Swansboro UMC is about creating and nurturing disciples of Jesus Christ, and our Sunday school classes do just that!  We invite you to enrich your Christian education, spiritual journey and friendships through active participation in one of our Sunday school classes.
