Who We Are

“Let us go forth in the power of the Holy Spirit to Be the Church!

- Words of Sending Forth heard every Sunday at Swansboro UMC.

Come “be the church” with us!

The Church is not a building. It is a people with a calling and a mission from God. Swansboro United Methodist Church is an active, diverse, and welcoming body of believers striving to grow in our love for God and our neighbor. We believe that Jesus calls us to be salt and light in the world and to “seek the welfare of the city … and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare” (Jeremiah 29:7).

Our community of faith includes people from all ages, backgrounds and walks of life. We come from Swansboro and many of the neighboring towns and coastal areas, with friends traveling from the far northern parts of the Crystal Coast all the way to Jacksonville and beyond. We welcome families with children and invite you to come and discover our outstanding children and youth ministries.

We have a large number of active and retired military in our congregation and seek to take special care for those who have loved ones currently deployed. Our Childcare and Preschool Center is well known for our loving and dedicated staff and the care we give to each child and family.  We have a thriving and energized Senior Adult Ministry with regular fellowship meals, speakers, games and activities. Whether you are new to the area, a long time resident, or just visiting on vacation, we have a place for you at Swansboro United Methodist Church.  

Come and journey with us as we seek to follow Jesus.
