What is MOR3?

We are a diverse group exploring ways we can reach beyond the walls of the “church” to share Christ’s love with the world in an open, honest, authentic, and respectful relationship with people who may not be involved in any church: agnostics, atheists, spiritual, non-spiritual, former & current Christians who just haven’t been to a church in a while, people with doubts, people with questions, people like us, people not like us, anyone, everyone. We encourage each other to do this MORE in our interactions with others on a personal level, as well as through exploring MORE ways we can serve as the church expressing authentic Christian love in the surrounding community.

We’re not seeking to “convert” others or trying to increase Bethany membership.  We’re simply seeking to be more faithful in loving our neighbors around us. 

Why the name "MOR3"?

MOR3 is the word MORE with the "E" turned backwards as a "3". The "3" relates to our church's mission to help people Experience God's Love, Know Jesus Christ, and Grow in His image.  Bethany UMC already does so much to make our community a better place. We’re just exploring ways we can do even more to extend a loving hand to those beyond our church walls.

Want to Know MOR3?

We’d love for you to join us in this endeavor to love our neighbors more.  There are many ways you can get involved!
