Welcome to Mattis Avenue Free Methodist Church!

At Mattis Avenue Free Methodist Church we worship God, make disciples of Jesus Christ and serve our community and world. Each body of believers is unique, and ours is no exception. On a typical Sunday morning, we have a wide variety of friends in attendance. You'll find longtime members sitting next to others who are new to the church- possibly even to the USA! All are welcome. It is our sincere desire to help everyone who connects with us to draw closer to Jesus. 

We hope that this site will be a helpful resource to you, and that you'll also connect with us in person if you haven't already.

In Christ,

Herb Coates
