At Smith Valley UMC, we believe that God has a mission for us, that we are here for a reason.  It is the guiding belief that shapes who we are and what we do.  Our mission at Smith Valley UMC is...

To Welcome All. To Follow Jesus.  To Change Lives & the World

Core Values

Our core values at Smith Valley UMC help define who we are and what we do.  Through a process of discernment, prayer and discussion, we have identified the following as our core values.

  1. Worship - attributing worth to God

  2. Prayer - communicating with God

  3. Community - caring about and addressing the needs of others

  4. Hope- giving hope to people who need some hope

  5. Relationships - people getting along with one another


As we bring together our mission and core values, we look to the future.  We have in our minds where it is that God is leading us, and bring clarity to our 2020 Vision.  This vision calls us to live out who we are by what we do.

We see Smith Valley as a church that is active and engaged in the local community for the sake of building God's kingdom.
