SENDING WELL WISHES AT THE SPEED OF A CLICK

Sometimes our friends are discharged from being in the hospital almost as soon as we discover they've been admitted!
We cannot squeeze in a visit, much less mail a card before they are back home.
But we can send a greeting - electronically! Our local hospitals offer ecards - just click on the hospital name below, and follow the directions.
Monongalia General Hospital

I will recount the gracious deeds of the Lord,

the praiseworthy acts of the Lord, because of all that the Lord has done, and the great favor he has shown according to his mercy, according to the abundance of his steadfast love.

Isaiah 63 : 7


We are a downtown United Methodist Congregation

seeking to live out our faith through service, social justice, and witness; and striving to be a people of open hearts, open minds, and open doors.  

Christian Education Opportunities:

We are so excited about this year's Vacation Bible School program that we are enlisting volunteers and recruiting participants now! Our dedicated website makes signing up easy!

Our children and youth classes meet year round, as do the adult groups.  A list of classes will help you decide on one to attend.

Under Ministries, see what Spruce Street groups do around our community.


We try to do our part in helping to stock the shelves at Scotts Run Settlement House (SRSH).

Spruce Streeters can bring food donations, personal care products, and household cleaning items to the grocery carts in Seekers Hall.


Worship

Visit us for worship ANY Sunday morning at 8:30 or 10:45.  Dress is casual to business casual. (Wear what is comfortable.)

Listen to our 10:45 service every Sunday morning on WCLG-AM 1300.
If you want a bulletin, you can request one.  We'll drop one into the mail on the Thursday before the Worship service so you can listen and follow on Sunday.

We also have an informal worship service on Wednesday evenings at 7.

On those Wednesday evenings before worship, we have a quick, enjoyable potluck meal at 6:30 in Seekers Hall (main floor).


 

Sharing God's Good News

One way we have been spreading the Gospel is by radio - since 1939! These days people can find us Sunday mornings on WCLG-AM, 1300.  

People sponsor our broadcasts in honor or in memory of loved ones, friends, families, and events. For information, contact the church office: 304-292-3359.


Dedicating flowers
for our worship services adds to the beauty of our sanctuary, reminds us of the splendor of God's creation, and can commemorate events, remember loved ones, or honor family and friends.
For more information, please contact the church office   (304-292-3359) or click here  to send an email.

Just what do we say about gun violence?

Glad you asked. The risk of handgun violence to children and youth is more prevalent in the United States today than in any previous generation.
The United Methodist Church recognizes and deplores violence which kills and injures children and youth. Read the resolution.

Come back, Blue Parking Passes!

We ask anyone who has borrowed a parking pass from the church to return it so that other volunteers can park without having to pay the meters. We understand that parking is at a premium in Downtown Morgantown, and having a parking pass is a priviledge. Please be thoughtful and share the church's resources with our other volunteers. Thank you.
