A Message From Our Pastor  

 Thank you for visiting. I am Reverend Althea Jackson, pastor at 
Haven United  Methodist Church. Explore our website to learn a little bit about us. We are a  family of  believers and a community of seekers loving, living and learning while daring to travel  through life the best we can. Our quest is to continually grow in our faith, creating  a vibrant relationship with the Lord Jesus and each other.

 Come and join us as we journey together on the complicated and complex path called life.  Our goal is to live the gospel to our highest and best ability and love each other as Jesus  loves us as we continue on toward perfection. There is plenty of room and an abundance  of possibilities. We extend an invitation to you to share in that journey.

 Come; let us do great things together. Join us as we take steps, both great and small.

 Be blessed. Be welcome. Be loved.

As she has been blessed, Joan seeks to be a source of blessing to all of God's children.
