Who Are We?

Pecan Street Mission is a new faith community of First United Methodist Church of Decatur. As the newest expression of our Decatur Methodist Family, we are cultivating intentionally inclusive community, rooted in the radical love of Jesus.

Our Mission
Pecan Street Mission exists to cultivate intentionally inclusive community rooted in the radical love of Jesus.

Our Core Values
We value…Affirmation & Inclusion
A Church where ALL people – skeptic & seeker, Democrat & Republican, gay & straight, young & old – have a real and valued place at the table. We mean it – whoever you are, you belong here.

We value Community Care
A Church committed to caring for & caring about our community. From helping place food into the hands of neighbors experiencing food insecurity to working against the systemic, societal forces which perpetuate hunger, we are committed to striving against both the symptom and the disease in our local & global community.

We value Wholistic Formation
A Church being formed into a whole greater than the sum of our individual parts. Being led from fragmentation to integration, from isolation to community, we value authentic relationships that make whole our bodies & souls.

We value Bold Exploration
A Church who encourages vulnerable conversations, critical questions, and holy curiosity – leaning boldly into the things we don’t normally talk about in Church.

If you have been searching for a community to call home, a safe place to explore questions of faith, or a way to put your hands & feet to work in service – then we invite you to come & see this new thing God is doing through Pecan Street Mission.

ALL are welcome – ALL are loved – ALL belong here.
