New to Christ United Methodist?

What to Expect

Going to a new church for the first time can be a little intimidating. Rest assured, when you come try a worship service with us on "any given Sunday," any fears or nervousness will be quickly allayed. So, what can you expect?

When you arrive at our building, you can expect to be greeted by a friendly face and have the door held open for you in welcome. You can expect to see a lot of people just being themselves in the hallway and narthex. You can expect to hear laughter, and to possibly strike up a quick conversation with one of our greeters or ushers. Sit anywhere you like. Take in the openness of our bright, light-filled sanctuary. Expect to experience a worship service that is at the same time traditional and fresh. You can expect lots of music — but NOT theatrics. Expect a family-friendly atmosphere, with a well-attended Children's Moment.  And expect a group of people both on the altar and in the pews that are 100% natural and genuine. We're proud of the authentic, feel-at-home atmosphere at Christ UMC. Come visit us for an 8:30am or 11:00am worship, see for yourself...

What We Believe

We believe in a God of grace who loves us unconditionally. There is nothing we have done or can do to earn that love, and nothing will ever separate us from it.

We believe God’s grace was revealed fully in Jesus Christ, who lived, died and was raised from the dead. His life, death and resurrection set us free from sin and empower us to love as God loves. And that he is present to all God’s children through the power of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the scriptures are best understood when they are read and interpreted within a community of faith. We also believe the church is the Body of Christ in the world, meant to do as Jesus did by, among many things, feeding the hungry, welcoming the outcast, sharing our possessions, offering healing and hope to the lost, and sharing the witness of faith. 

We are a United Methodist Church. To learn more about the United Methdodist Church and what we believe Click Here.

What About My Kids?

As you'll see from the healthy Children's Moment during the middle of our service each Sunday morning, Christ UMC is extremely kid friendly. We have active children's and youth ministries, and there's always plenty for young ones to do.

We offer Children's Worship for grade-school kids. There is Sunday School for ALL AGES between our morning and late services. And we also have a nursery for your toddlers if you'd like to use that option during worship service. So bring your little or big ones with you this Sunday!
