Our Mission & Vision

The mission of the South Dayton Free Methodist Church is “To know Jesus Christ and to make Him known.”

To know Jesus Christ is to understand the love that God has for us in sending His only Son so that we can have eternal life with God.  Because He has done this for us, we are motivated to tell others in both word and deed. We are here to spread this love and healing in our community.

A-Team (Administrative)

The A-Team is comprised of Spirit-Filled believers who use their talents to minister the grace of Jesus Christ in a leadership capacity.  Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

A whole person is best equipped to serve Christ and our community.  As a result, we emphasize the fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23.

Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations.  Members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as mowing the church lawns, to preparing the church bulletins.   These may sound like trivial things but they are important places to serve and in serving, God is faithful to bring spiritual growth, maturity and fellowship.


God-honoring worship is something we strive for. As a multi-generational church, we use both new and older songs.  The music volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.  If you are interested in getting involved in the Music Ministry, see Pastor Matt.

Christian Education Classes

Every Sunday morning our children’s small group time is fun and creative. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. All of our Christian education teachers are carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Pastor Matt.


The usher team fills an important role. They are involved in greeting visitors, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.

Media & Technology

In our service, we use visual aids to help communicate the gospel in a clear way. We also record the services so that they can be listened to when desired. If you like technology and would be willing to serve on this team, talk to Pastor Matt

Prayer Warriors

At the South Dayton Free Methodist Church, we rely on prayer and the hand of God for many things.  Our vibrant Prayer Ministry is the backbone of God’s work in our fellowship.  All are welcome to pray with us on Sunday Mornings at 8:30 AM.  We also pray during our services, as well as throughout the week.

Children’s Church

We offer Children’s Church during our service so that our future generation is getting spiritual nourishment at a level that they can understand.  Children’s church takes place during the Sunday Morning service after “Children’s Moments.”


Nursery is available for children birth to age 3 during worship service from 10:30 – 11:30 AM.

Where? What? When?

Sunday School

 Fellowship is an important aspect of the church. We get together Sunday mornings at 9:30 for simple breakfast and conversation. Following breakfast Christian Education Classes meet at 9:45 and there is a class for everyone.  Sunday School (although a boring name) is anything but boring.  There is good discussion on matters of faith, friendships are formed and in the process we are changed.  We believe this time sets forth the foundation for our lives in a world that is going crazy and unraveling.
