What To Expect
Thinking about visiting Green Street United Methodist Church?
We'll be excited to have you. We do our best to be a welcoming congregation and faith community. We have dedicated visitor parking in front of the church, and we're fully handicapped accessible. When attending a worship service, you'll be greeted warmly at a sanctuary door and be given an opportunity to ask any question you may have.
You'll discover that 'Green Streeters' are committed to individual spiritual growth, joined together in faith worship, and serving God in fellowship for the betterment of God's local and world community.
Who else goes to this church; is there anyone there like me?
Whoever you are, and whereever you're from, you'll feel comfortable at Green Street. Green Streeters are a diverse group of national and international parishioners. We're young and we're old. We're white, Hispanic and black, with several hues in between. And we're also gay and straight. Our families are traditional yet we have single fathers and mothers. Our worshipers come from as close by as Augusta, and from as far away as the Philippines, Aruba and Rwanda.
