Worship with Us

Welcome to New Prospect Church! We are delighted to have you visit our website and invite you to join us soon!


New Prospect Church is a small congregation with a big heart! We are a conservative, evangelical United Methodist congregation who is currently in the process of transitioning to the Global Methodist Church. Our church has a rich history and devoted leadership team that you can read more about from pages on the menu above. The primary distinctive that defines us as a congregation is our love for Jesus and one another and our commitment to the Word of God as we seek to fellowship together in the unity and power of the Holy Spirit.


We worship together on Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. Our services include a children’s sermon and opportunity for elementary age children to attend Children’s Church. We also offer additional opportunities for fellowship, small group discipleship, and ministry/service throughout the week.


We are located at 334 Prospect Church Road in Athens, Georgia.


Our services incorporate aspects of both traditional and contemporary worship. Dress is casual. We have a beautiful altar where we pray and receive communion. Our church serves communion on the first Sunday of each month. We practice open communion, which means that all who love Christ, who earnestly repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another are invited to participate.


We gather to worship the Lord and to encourage one another in our walks with Christ. For us the good news can be summed up fairly simply: Love God and love others. Nothing else matters!


We are also called to share the gospel beyond the doors of our church. Therefore, we affirm with John Wesley that “the world is our parish,” and we seek to make Jesus known in word and deed wherever we are, both at home and around the world!
