Welcome

PASTOR’S WELCOME

Thank you for your interest in Main Street United Methodist Church!   We are a faith community seeking to follow Christ by growing in our relationships with God and our relationships with one another while serving in the world around us.

I want to invite you to take some time to look around our new website. You will find information and ways to connect with the ministries that make up Main Street, including our children’s ministry, youth ministry, Prime Time, Adult Sunday School groups and Wednesday night Fellowship and study opportunities. Just as importantly, you will find ways to connect with hands-on serving opportunities in our community and beyond.  

Many years ago, Main Street UMC made the decision to remain in downtown Hattiesburg with a commitment to making a difference in our community.  For over forty years, our primary mission partnership has been with Briarfield Housing Development through Aldersgate Mission, an after-school and summer program with children and families. In recent years, our active and growing local mission partnerships have expanded to include Edward’s Street Fellowship Center and Hawkins Elementary School. Within these partnerships, there are many opportunities to serve.

Founded in 1883, the strength of Main Street remains in its wonderful blend of young and old, traditional and modern. All share a love for Jesus Christ, a desire to grow in spiritual maturity and servant discipleship, and a love for our community—locally and globally.

If you are looking for a place of warmth and welcome, where you can share your gifts with others, we invite you to join us in worship, visit a Sunday School class,Wednesday night small group or connect with a local serving opportunity.

Come and walk with us on this grace-filled journey!
