Morning Star United Methodist

Welcome to Morning Star United Methodist Church! We are growing in our ministries and hope you can find a  place here to join with others in worshipping God, growing in the faith, serving others, and being a part of a joy-filled community. 

We gather to worship together every Sunday at 11am. For directions and parking click here.

Our service is informal and somewhat traditional. On any Sunday we might have toe-tapping choir specials, pictures that accompany sermons, old fashion hymns or contemporary specials, short videos, and special services that invite you to deepen your walk of discipleship (covenant renewal, re-affirmation of our baptisms, and other services throughout the Christian year).

Everyone is welcome, no dress code required!

Services last around an hour.

Pastor Nicole Jones

Welcome to Morning Star United Methodist!

       My name is Rev. Nicole Jones. Since July 2014 it has been my pleasure to serve as pastor at Morning Star UMC.

       I began my time in ministry as a Director of Christian Ministry in 2005, serving Jefferson United Methodist Church. I attended Duke Divinity School as a Thriving Rural Fellow in 2007 and began pastoral ministry at a two-point charge in 2010.

       I met my husband Stephen at Appalachian State and we are blessed with our four children that keep us busy and laughing all day every day.

      It is a joy to see the ways that God works through the local church. I am encouraged to witness people responding to God's call on their lives to grow deeper in love with God and neighbor through worship, fellowship, discipleship and mission.

       We'd love for you to come and be a part of how God is working through Morning Star UMC!
