We are a United Methodist Congregation seeking to live out our faith through service, justice, social witness, and striving to be a people of open hearts, open minds, and open doors.
Visit us for worship Sunday mornings at 8:30 or 10:45, or Wednesday evenings at 7.
Children's Church: Children pre-K to grade 5 participate in the worship service until they are excused for Children's Church. They join the congregation and locate their parents before the service is finished; or if the lesson is long, or the worship service is short, the Children's Church leaders will keep them in class until parents and guardians arrive to get their children.*
Children's Choir practice is in the choir room (top floor) following our 10:45 service on Sundays. Parents should request information from Dr. Sun Jung Lee: email@example.com
Listen to our 10:45 service every Sunday morning on WCLG-AM 1300. If you want a bulletin to follow along in our service, click here to request one.
If you walk into Seekers Hall on our main level, you will see a collection bin of some type in nearly each nook. From hotel soap and shampoo samples to usable, used winter coats, and from Bartlett House downtown to Scotts Run Settlement House in Osage, our community agencies fill many needs.
We are the church – we help fill those bins with needed supplies – but we go beyond the bins: We do it all in the name of the Lord, and we do so with love.
Remember we are blest to be a blessing!
Like many United Methodist Churches at this time of year, we will celebrate stewardship, taking care of what God has entrusted to us by using the gifts we have. Throughout November, we will hear a familiar Gospel passage from Matthew 28,
Flowers enhance our chancel area during our worship service. People have dedicated them in memory of a persons' birthdays, in honor of loved ones, wedding anniversaries, adoptions, homecomings, and departure for active duty in our armed forces.
Sharing God's Good News is also What We're About

Share the love of Jesus by packing a shoe box with toys, hygiene items, and school supplies, then shipping it to a child in another part of the world through OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD. Bring the shoe boxes to Spruce Street Church before November 24.What may be a small shoe box to us can turn out to be a large, life-changing posession to a child who may not have a toothbrush, or one who doesn't have a scratch pad to write on - or pencils to write with. More details here.
