Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world
To know Jesus and to make Him known
- To be devoted to Christ
- To be committed to one another
- To be dedicated to reaching those outside God’s family with the gospel of Jesus Christ
- To be persistent in moving those within God’s family toward a Christ-centered life
Because Jesus laid down His life for us, we gladly devote our lives to Him.
Because the Bible is crucial to our knowing and following God, our worship, teaching and preaching must be biblically based and culturally relevant so that it can be understood by everyone while never sacrificing the doctrinal truths and core beliefs upon which this church was founded.
Because we are helpless without Christ and His Holy Spirit working in us, we seek Him in every aspect of our lives as individuals and as a church.
Because Godly leaders are vital to the health and growth of the church, we pursue humble men and women to lead us, seeking those whom the Holy Spirit has chosen, equipped and empowered with the qualities required for biblical leadership.
Because all people are created in the image of God and are treasured by Him, we treasure them as well, loving them, accepting them and guiding them to Jesus.
Because Christians are to be known by their love for one another, we will always love and humbly serve each other.
Because everyone benefits when we use the gifts God has given us, we work together to sharpen those gifts and provide opportunities to use them.
Because people’s opinions of God are often influenced by the quality of our work, we strive for excellence in all we do, believing this will bring glory to God and draw people to Him.

Sondra has been a member of Pine Castle United Methodist Church since 1983. As a teenager, she was active in the youth ministry and volunteered in the infant and toddler nursery. As young adults, her and her husband (also a member of Pine Castle), began to date and got married at the end of 1990. They have 4 children, all active and part of the ministries of the church. In January of 1993 God gave Sondra the job of her dreams. Sondra's heart is to see children grow spiritually, digging deep into God's Word and discovering who they are in Christ. There is nothing a child cannot do, the Holy Spirit is big and mighty in each of them and they can and will do GREAT things.
