The Arkansas United Methodist: Living Our Faith

The AUM is a monthly online magazine that provides stories that coincide with the trajectory of the Arkansas Conference:

The trajectory of the Arkansas Conference of the United Methodist Church is to create vital congregations that make disciples of Jesus Christ, who make disciples equipped to transform lives, communities, and the world.

With that in mind, the purpose of the Arkansas United Methodist is to be an extension of that good work.

We will work with United Methodist Churches across the state of Arkansas to tell their stories, lift up their missions, and encourage everyone to live out their Christian faith and be examples to the world.

We will not seek to divide our congregation among hot button issues, but rather work to bring everyone closer together through positive, uplifting stories of good works happening in our communities, cities, counties, and state.

We will carry on the rich tradition of the Arkansas United Methodist, which has been in circulation since the 1880’s, by highlighting conference-wide initiatives and agencies.

And we will listen to our audience for their words of encouragement, as well as their words of critique, working together to create a better sense of community within the Arkansas Conference of the United Methodist Church.
