Greetings and God Bless You!


            And thanks for stopping by.

            I’m Gene Maddox pastor, here at Oneco United Methodist Church.

            I’m new, having arrived in July 2016.

            Who are we? We are a group of people who are seeking to love God with all our heart and love everyone else just like Jesus does. We have a lot to learn and a long way to go, but with God’s help, we genuinely believe we are headed in the right direction. And we would love the opportunity to connect with you. Probably, the two best times to come over would be at our worship service at 10:00AM on Sundays, and our family dinner (food is provided) on Wednesday evenings at 6:00PM (September – May).

            If you have any questions, please call me at 386-546-2733.

            Thanks for taking time to browse our webpage. We’d love to see you!


            Pastor Gene        PS:  Please feel free to view my sermon notes under the information/Newsletter tab at the top of the page. Thank you.
