Worship at SUMC

We have a passion for meaningful worship and

welcome you here.


IN PERSON WORSHIP IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

We continue to worship God online. Join us beginning each Sunday at 9am. Online worship and Sunday children's ministry is available ongoing.




We have four worship options. All have the same scripture and message, but the music and components are different. Heartfelt prayers, energizing music, and a motivating message all seek to share God's grace and hope for the week ahead. 


Join us at a time that best suits your schedule or come for a worship style you prefer. We are here to worship Jesus, whatever the day, time or style.

5 Things

(PROCESS FOR GROWING EVER DEEPER IN CHRISTIAN FAITH)

1

CONNECT

We believe that Jesus extends grace to everyone and that we should follow in his steps. No matter where you're coming from, you'll find you fit in here. We are a caring community for people of all places in life.

2

GROW

We believe God wants us to have a relationship with him. In keeping a close relationship, we become more like him. Prayer, study, and fellowship with believers help us to grow in that relationship with him.

3

SERVE

We believe what we do is all about Jesus.  We believe he asks us to care for and serve others.  We share the love of Christ through these actions.  We invite you to come along side us.

4

GIVE

We believe God blesses us in many ways: our treasure, our talents, and more. We believe a portion of our talents and treasure belong to him. It is a privilege to return some of what he has given us in the form of tithes, gifts, and offerings

5

GO

We believe Jesus asks us to share what we have found in our relationship with him and to be available to go out to share his love and grace with anyone and everyone.

WHO DO WE WELCOME TO HEAR THE STORY OF JESUS?

"Simple. Everyone." 

Vision


Everyone is sharing God's love and grace through Jesus Christ in their 24x7 lives. So that...we are making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of our community and the world.
