Our Church

Welcome to a friendly church, a place where everyone knows your name.

Our Vision is what we are: To be and make disciples of Jesus Christ.

We do this by:

1. Reaching people for Christ

2. Relating to one another in the Christian Community

3. Raising Up fully committed followers of Christ

4. Releasing disciples to change the world

We really are a family. If you are looking for a place where people genuinely want to get to know you and get plugged in, then this is the place for you!

We are a family-centered congregation in our identity as God's children. Our central act as a family is our Sunday worship service. 

We are a church on the move! Our faith is active and alive, and we go into the community to share Christ's message in many ways. We are excited to welcome new folks into the family and to join us on our mission!

Our Pastor:

Pastor Bridget Thornton has been at Christ United Methodist Neptune Beach since July 2016. She is an Elder in Full Connection in The United Methodist Church.

Pastor Bridget is warm and compassionate. Her sermons are biblically based and sprinkled with a sense of humor. She loves her congregation and the community that surrounds it. Bridget is in her sixth year of pastoral ministry and prior to pastoral ministry worked in churches and non-profits as a bookkeeper and administrator. 

Bridget has a Masters of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary and a B.A. in Religion from The Florida State University. 

Pastor Bridget is married to Kevin and together they have identical, four-year-old, twin boys. The boys and church keep Pastor Bridget busy and when she can she sneaks in a nap or a good book!
