Some Questions You May Have...
 Many people will be dressed casual, however there are some who come in suites and ties. Wear what you feel most comfortable in and dress the kiddos in what they wear... even if that's just a diaper because little Adam puked on the car trip over (it's happened to all us, we understand). Please truly come as you are and in what you typically wear. Be you!

 The United Methodist Church is the second largest non-Catholic denomination in the United States. It was originally founded in the United States in late 18th century due to religious revival of John Wesley. Wesley believed and taught that God loved everyone; that everyone could have a relationship with God; that the sacraments of baptism and Communion were gifts to be offered freely to everyone no matter where they were in their journey of faith.

What do I wear?
Where do I park?
 When you pull into the parking lot, you'll see people standing outside the double doors of the church to greet you. Either door will bring you in the building. There are visitor parking spots by the front doors, but park in whatever parking spot you want. When you walk in there will be a reception desk with someone to greet you and give you information, there is also coffee to get you jump started, a nursery to the left as you walk in to drop off young ones during service if you'd like and bathrooms.
Where do I sit?
Where do my children go during service?
What is a Methodist?
Please sit wherever you feel comfortable! If you aren't sure, let one of the ushers help find you a seat. We're happy you've come to visit and we promise to not bite.
 All children are welcome to stay with their guardians in the service, however after the "Children's Message" towards the very beginning of service we offer a time for parents to enjoy service without their children. For the little ones (0-4) we offer a nursery and for our older children (5-12) we have Sunday school. All children are brought back to their parents after the sermon for Holy Communion. For more information on what we have for children, click here.
What does it mean that you are a Reconciling Congregation?
Being a reconciling congregation means that we are committed to equality and full inclusion in all aspects of the United Methodist Church for all persons regardless of race, gender, age, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality or economic status and we are dedicated to advocating for changes in society and our church where discrimination is found. For more information on reconciling congregations, click here.
We invite you to join us for in-person worship at 10 AM each Sunday or join us on our livestream that is found on our facebook page. We are a progressive and open church that welcomes all people to be a part of our community of faith. Church is a mixture of traditional and contemporary music and we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion each Sunday, and of course, all our welcome to come to our table and eat and drink.  You won't find hell-fire and brimstone here, nor condemnation and shame, only a message of love and grace that challenges all of us to be more Christlike in everything we say and do.

Ways to Join...
As United Methodist's there are several ways to become a member of the Church. It starts with God's gracious gift of baptism. In the UMC we baptize beginning from infancy. However, if you've already been baptized in a Christian church you can make a profession of faith or transfer membership from a different church. For more information, contact our pastor.
