Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors. The people of the United Methodist Church

Paoli United Methodist Church

We are a church involved in missions. We support the school nurse's program, Habitat for Humanity and the Jubilee Christmas program for Throop elementary school. On the fourth Sunday of each month we have a "Mission Moment" segment to keep the congregation informed on our current mission projects. Howard Detweiler is our current mission chairperson.

The Paoli United Methodist church is working to help others in need.

If you visit us, we keep the last two rows/pews at the back of the sanctuary open for visitors and we wear name tags to help visitors feel more comfortable as you are greeted.

Healthy Connections and Contacts

Your total health is a network of connections and contacts. It is all about your mental, physical and spiritual parts working together to maintain balance. Your health is a continuous process, the interplay of different forces and conditions. No problem can be seen in isolation. Our task at the Paoli church is to help you get back into a healthy balance when faced with a major life decision or various types of internal or external crisis situations.

Major life choices:

  • Thinking about getting married? Premarital education
  • As your marriage relationship changes, are you able to change too? Short term marriage crisis counseling
  • What heritage do want to leave behind for others to remember? Dying well

Devotional thought

What is a Mature Faith?

If we have a lot of money or we want a lot of money then we need to ask for God's grace to give up our love of that money to the exclusion of using it to love and bless others.

If we do not have enough money or we are angry at those who have a lot, we need God's grace to overcome our lack of trust in God to provide and to overcome our anger which hurts only ourselves.

This does not mean we stop working to help the poor and the way to deal with economic disparity. What it does mean is we need to stop seeing people as oppressors or victims. After all, Jesus healed and saved both the rich and the poor. He did not favor one group over another. He was ruler of all people.
