What is SUMC?
When are your worship services?
9:30 am on Sunday morning in the sanctuary. We offer special services during Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter.
What are your services like?
We offer a mix of the old and the new, the word and music. We are a multi-generational community. All are welcome.
What about the children?
Children participate in worship for up until the Children’s Moment. At that point, they are dismissed to church school. Sunday school programs are offered for children aged 3-11. We offer nursery care for children up to age 2. Middle school students learn in the Grapple Group which weaves scripture with the issues they are grappling with. Our high school students participate as adults in the worship services, serving as readers, singing in the choir, or teaching in the church school. The God Squad is our youth group for the high school students and it meets on Sunday evenings.
What is a Methodist Church?
Methodism was founded in England by John and Charles Wesley in the 18th century. It spread rapidly in the United States in the 19th century. Today there are near 18 million Methodists around the world, and nearly 9 million in the United States.
And, what do you believe?
We believe in all of the historic and central doctrines of the Christian faith: The Trinity, the divinity of Christ, the necessity of salvation through Christ’s atoning work, the resurrection of Christ, and the resurrection of the dead unto eternal life. We believe that Christ has “prepared a place for us” in heaven and that we will one day dwell with him. We believe that the classical doctrines of the Christian faith are accurately summarized through ancient creeds and historic affirmations of the church.
What is a Reconciling Church?
Reconciling churches welcome all persons into full participation in the life of the congregation regardless of age, sex, racial or ethnic background, sexual orientation, marriage status, or physical or mental condition.
