WELCOME! WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
Welcome to University United Methodist Church (UUMC).
You are welcome whether you are young or old; widowed, divorced, married, or single; whether you come with kids or grandkids in tow, or with loved ones who are aging or of differing abilities.
You are welcome however you identify culturally, racially or ethnically, whether you are gay, straight, lesbian, trans, queer; no matter your gender identity or expression, native tongue or immigration status.
Whether you are a life-long church member or just exploring spirituality and faith for the first time - you are a beloved child of God and you are welcome here.
Come as you are - with your faith, doubts and questions!
Your presence will be a blessing.
OPEN HEARTS, OPEN MINDS, OPEN DOORS
Sundays @ 10:30 am
Weekly worship at UUMC in the era of COVID19 remains virtual. During the 35-40 minute service we pray, sing, listen to Scripture, and a message. You may view the service anytime, or join us for live viewing together Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on our Facebook page.
We celebrate the gifts of our people and invite you participate in our prerecorded worship services in many ways - by sharing your gifts of music, singing, reading scripture, praying, by sending our office photos of hope that we can include in our digital bulletin.
We also invite you to our monthly outdoor prayer and communion service on the second Sunday of the month at 5pm, weather permitting. We ask you to preregister your attendance, wear a mask, and bring a lawn chair.
GROWING IN OUR FAITH
We have several opportunities for connection and growth in this virtual time:
Prayer Calls happen every Wednesday at noon on Zoom.
Adult Sunday school (which is drop in as you are able) happen every Sunday at 11:15am on Zoom.
Children's Ministry plans are in the works for some outdoor story time and fun activities this fall! Stay tuned for more info.
Our AntiRacism group is currently meeting virtually to study I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness, as part of our commitments to becoming an antiracist community of faith. Future steps will be announced at the conclusion of the study in September.
Other topics for faith development or gatherings are being developed. Sign up for our weekly blast to be in the know as they are announced.
MEET WITH OUR PASTOR
During this time Pastor Michelle is available to meet you over porch visits, walks, or at our new picnic tables on our lovely lawn at University UMC. We can pick up coffee (Casey's coffee) or ice cream (Park 520) from our neighboring shops next door and meet at the picnic tables!
