The community of SUMC includes members whose family has been coming for generations, new retirees moving from the big city, families with babies, and everything in between.
All are welcome.
SUMC values people from all backgrounds, holding true to the root of the gospel and DNA of the church that the community engages with the diversity of God’s creation including that of theology, politics, economics, identity, accessibility.
Worship in different modes.
Worship happens in a lot of different ways, in-person, online, or on the trail.
In-person services include 9am Contemplative Service outside (May-Sept) and 10:30am Service in the sanctuary.
Online experiences include live Zoom of the 10:30 service and YouTube recordings of the 10:30 service.
Worship on the hiking trail, in your home or in the garden through reflective prompts in the Glad Tider each month.
Children in worship
We LOVE children! Children are always welcome in the worship service! Each week the teachers have a chat with the children as part of the worship service. All children are invited to “children’s church” upstairs following the children’s message in the worship service.
The nursery is staffed by two adults located on the 2nd floor. All volunteers are given background checks. A copy of the SUMC Safe Sanctuary policy is available in the church office. Accommodations for care due to accessibility is available.
Casual jeans or dressed up with a suit and dress.
We have available parking on the street (College, Pine & E. Third streets) as well as a paved lot at the corner of E. Third St. & Pine St.
Our historic church building is accessible to those with wheelchairs or walkers. The second floor, including the balcony seating and the children’s classrooms is only accessible by stairs. Our ramp entrance is from the parking lot.
Devices that are connected to the church sound system are available. Just ask a greeter.
