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, 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, where we have a welcoming nursery.  We also have services on Wednesday evenings at 7. 


Listen to our 10:45 service every Sunday morning on WCLG-AM 1300.  If you want a bulletin to follow along in our service by radio, request one here.


Children's Information

These Mighty Missionaries' activities and mission events appear in the monthly newsletter and the Sunday Bulletin.

Youth Mission Activity

Not being ones to loaf during their break, the youth will meet at the church on Monday morning at 9:30, December 22, and walk to the Community Kitchen at Trinity Episocal Church where they will volunteer their services. 

Watch the newsletters and bulletins for more information on future activities, or click on the Youth Ministries Site


We celebrate stewardship: Using the gifts we have to take care of what God has entrusted to us.  

As we look forward to the many plans and programs we make for Spruce Street and our community, and think about our gifts, and how we can transform our world, one disciple at a time, ask, "What does God expect of me?"

If making a pledge to Spruce Street is one of the ways you wish to help make disciples, the church office accepts pledge cards any time.  Pledge cards are on the "Name tag" table and other locations throughout the building. Please be sure to sign and date yours before turning it in.

Many thanks to those who have recently given to United Methodist Charities

Chritsmas giving opportunities in honor and in memory of loved ones have been designated this season to these organizations:

Althought our deadline has passed for the "Christamas giving" in honor and in memory, we can continue to give offerings to these organizations all year.  Checks can be made to Spruce Street UMC with one of the named charities (above) in the memo field.  


Wednesday Nights are busy at Spruce Street:

  • 6:30 - Potluck Dinner
  • 7:00 - Worship
  • 7:00 - Youth Group Meeting  (Not on Christmas eve or New Year's eve)

Drop by for a quick bite to eat.  Stay for Communion!


Flowers

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.  

 
The cost is $35, and we purchase the flowers from a local florist. If you're interested in a particular date, please see the sign-up sheet on the "Name tag" table, or contact the church office: 304-292-3359; sprucestumc@gmail.com

Sharing God's Good News is also What We're About

One way we do it is by radio: Specifically, WCLG-AM, 1300.  To do this, people sponsor our broadcasts in honor or in memory of loved ones, friends, families, and events. The cost is $80. If a friend wishes to co-sponsor with you, and the two of you wish to honor two different people or events, you can share the cost. Sign up at the "Name tag" table, or check with the Church Office for open dates:   304-292-3359; sprucestumc@gmail.com

Last minute gift-Church memento

Need a last minute idea for a gift? A replica of Spruce Street Church with our history on the back would make a great present for someone who married at Spruce Street, or was baptized here.  Contact Kathy Hanko to purchase a Cat's Meow model of the church. The $25 gifts are on-hand; no waiting.
