May the Grace and Peace of the Lord be upon you and bless you!
We are excited that you have been led to this ministry site and are looking around. You will find these faith communities in this parish to be filled with people, first and foremost who love God; people who love each other; and people who love to serve others and share Gods’ love to those in need.
My wife, Patty, and I are thrilled and honored to have this opportunity to share the love of God with our communities of Orleans, Mitchell, Leipsic, and the surrounding area. My desire is that each person who enters this faith community would not only sense the presence of God inviting them into a loving relationship but also drawing them to make the decision to live a more complete and fulfilling life.
Regardless of your background or where you currently are in your spiritual life, I pray that not only would you find peace and love but also encouragement, healing (either spiritual or physical), and rest. We look forward to having the opportunity to meet you and have you worship with us at any of our ministry locations or times. If you have any questions, or if I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email is [email protected]

Our Wesleyan Heritage
United Methodists trace our heritage back to a pair of brothers who started the Methodist movement in 1700s England. John and Charles Wesley, helped lead a movement to “spread Scriptural holiness over the land.”

Our Social Principles
Taking an active stance in society is nothing new for followers of John Wesley. He set the example for us to combine personal and social piety. Ever since predecessor churches to United Methodism flourished in the United States, we have been known as a denomination involved with people’s lives, with political and social struggles, having local to international mission implications. Such involvement is an expression of the personal change we experience in our baptism and conversion.

We Are Disciples
United Methodists are disciples of Jesus Christ who continue to heed the lessons John Wesley taught his followers: to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed; being a compassionate presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.
