Who We Are >

 

Family + Hope + Comfort

 
These are the words our members and visitors think of when we ask them how they feel at Memorial.
 
We are a welcoming community. All are welcome here.
 
Come as you are. You can wear leggings and a t-shirt, and you can dress up. For some of us Sunday is the only time we get to dress up. Be yourself!
 
Our pastor wears sneakers and a stole. Robes are worn at Advent and for special occasions like funerals. In the worship image of Pastor Robyn shown below, she regaled us with both a Mary Poppins-inspired demonstration and a Star Wars reference. She's one to literally jump into any situation, or dumpster, to get things done.
          
 
We have coffee. At everything. At any time. 
 
We do not "pass the peace." There is no mandatory hand-shaking here. We do like to hug, but we'll ask first.
 
We want to grow and learn. We want to grow with you and we want to help you know Jesus better. We'd love to meet you.

FAQs about United Methodists 

 
In Progress:
 
Songs during worship
The United Methodist Church uses four hymnals:
  1. The United Methodist Hymnal (UMH) (the red one)
  2. The Faith We Sing (TFWS) (the black one)
  3. Worship and Song (the green one)
  4. The Cokesbury Worship Hymnal (the Cokesbury)
The bulletin (the paper handout) will indicate which one is being sung and if the church uses screens, like we do, the song information and words to the song will be on the overhead screens.
 
The song number, e.g. UMH#140, means to open the red hymnal, The United Methodist Hymnal (UMH) to page 140 which is also song 140. 
 
Don't be concerned about being unsure. We'll help you and you can always use the screens.
