Welcome to Union United Methodist Church's Webpage. Please come and worship God with us during the Informal or Traditional Services. We look forward to meeting you.
"But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many members, yet one body." 1 Corinthians 12:18-20
The Church Universal, though diverse and spread throughout the world, is the Body of Christ. Each local congregation plays a role in witnessing to the love of Jesus and nurturing one another in the faith. Every individual is important to God and has a place in His Church. Membership in a local church carries with it both benefits and responsibilities. Members should be aware of their own spiritual gifts and of the opportunities to use them, to the glory of God, in the context of their local church and community.
With this in mind, I plan to offer “New Member Classes” for anyone who now attends or plans to attend our church and may be considering becoming a member of Union UMC. I will offer information on United Methodist history, beliefs, doctrine and structure. We will discuss the meaning of membership and what is expected of members who want to participate in the work of Christ and the life of the congregation. I will fill you in on all the ministries currently going on at UUMC and the opportunities for you to serve or be served through our ministries. You can expect periods of casual and open dialogue with plenty of time being given for questions and answers.
If you are considering membership in Union UMC, I cordially invite you and encourage you to join me for these sessions. Classes will be held in the sanctuary on Sunday from 10:30 – 11:30 (Sunday School hour) beginning on Sunday, July 12. Classes are also scheduled for July 19 and July 26. There will be 4-5 sessions depending on our progress and needs with August date(s) to be determined. There is no pressure – let’s just get to know one another and the church. If you have any questions, please call me at the church office. Peace for your journey.
Your Fellow Servant in Christ,
