About Moorhead U M Church
Brockway Area Ministries was formed in 2013 when the Lanes Mills and Moorhead United Methodist Churches came together because of the realization that they were able to do more for the Brockway Area community together than they could separately.  Since that time they have continuously sought ways to be one church with two locations while acknowledging their uniqueness of their respective place in the body of Christ.
 
             Lanes Mills United Methodist Church has been in continuous existence in the community of Brockway for over 125 years.   On October 27, 1893, the project of building a church building began.  Many changes have taken place in the congregation and its properties during our history but, the one thing that has not changed is our purpose and mission.  “Much of this historical sketch concerns bricks and mortar, land and lumber, changes and improvements, but the real history of this church involves laity and clergy, people and God, people and people. For we have, and we do, make up the Body of Christ.  Our history has been, and continues to be, a people to Christ and membership in his church, growing in Christian maturity, maintaining warm fellowship, and involvement in ministry with the church and mission to the world. Together we are the United Methodist Church - yesterday, today and tomorrow.” (excerpt from website history) Today the congregation continues to worship and serve to be a positive influence in the life of Brockway.
 
Moorhead United Methodist Church has been in continuous existence in the community of Brockway for 156 years.  We are the oldest congregation of Christian believers in Brockway.  In 1861 the project of building a church building began and the rest is history as they say.  Outreach into the community has always been the main thrust of Moorhead’s vision of ministry.  This currently includes a Comfort and Care program that provides on average 44 meals per week for up to as many as 50 individuals no longer able to prepare their own meals both short term or long term.  They are the charter organization for Boy Scout Troop 50 which will celebrate it’s 100th anniversary of continuous scouting at Moorhead this year. Our after-school program provides a safe and secure learning environment for up to fourteen elementary school age children. The parsonage has become home to the Helping Hand Food Pantry that provides food for as many as 108 families facing food insecurity issues. Like Lanes Mills the congregation continues to worship and serve to be a positive influence in the life of Brockway.
