Visitors // Visitantes

“Let mutual love continue.  Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing [so] some have entertained angels without knowing it.”  Hebrews 13:1-2

Here at Watsonville First United Methodist Church it is our goal to offer radical hospitality to all our guests and visitors.*

  • We ask God to give our church open hearts, open minds and open doors for all newcomers.
  • We pray for opportunities to get to know the new people in our congregation.
  • We call upon God to increase our responsiveness to the folks we haven’t even met yet.
  • We look for opportunities to discuss our joys/struggles/fears related to our relationships with others and with God.
  • We pray for God’s help in reaching out to our neighbors in love.
  • To us, welcoming means helping people connect with ways to express their unique gifts through the church beyond worship.
  • We ask God to give a sense of peace to those who ask for forgiveness.
  • We seek to understand how others experience God in different ways.
  • And we strive to go beyond our comfort zone in welcoming guests.

We invite all spiritual seekers to join us on our Christian journey.  Welcome!
