The Lord has told you what is good,
and this is what he requires of you:  no more than to act justly, love grace, and walk humbly with your God. 


We are a 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.  


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

We've seen the sales pitch so many stores use to get us in the door: BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!!
If we want only one of something, we could bring the "extra something" to church for Scotts Run Settlement House. Our Monongalia County neighbors could surely use many items we regularly pick up at a grocery store.

At any time during the week when the building is open, Spruce Streeters can bring their donations to the grocery carts in Seekers Hall. An angel or two deliver them to SRSH several times per month.

 


Christian Education Opportunities:

A list of classes will help you decide on one to attend.

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 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


Current Mon Valley District News


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.


Behind the Scenes Each Week

We need volunteers to sign up for tasks: nursery help, communion servers, hosts/hostesses, and greeters. Sign-up lists are in the overflow and Seekers Hall.

If you can't get near one of the sign-up sheets, please contact the church office to volunteer (304-292-3359).
