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 (with a new email address: sprucestumc@gmail.comseeking 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. 

 


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.


Our nursery is open on Sunday Morning and is available for children ages infant to three years. The Nursery is a fun and safe place for infants and toddlers. Our staff Nursery Coordinator is trained in safety and first aid.* 

Children's ChurchChildren 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.*


Got kids? Try this! BOLD PARENTING -

A study during the Sunday School hour (9:30 a.m.)  Information: lizzyadrienne@gmail.com 

Last day of the study: Oct 19


Volunteers with Children and Youth - Oct 12 is important

Do you plan to work with children or youth at Spruce Street Church? We'd love to have your helping hands . . . after you have received training in a Child Protection Standards Presentation.

And you're in luck! October 12 during a Children's Ministry Meeting, you can attend just such a presentation!  The Team will meet after the 10:45 service on Sunday, October 12.  We look forward to your volunteer work.


Spruce Street's fun activities are not limited to downtown Morgantown.  

Example:  Fall Festival!

We will celebrate with Suncrest United Methodist Church on October 26 from 2 p.m. with Trunk or Treat through the afternoon in Suncrest's pavilion with a bonfire, s'mores, and pumpkin decorating -- then in the evening in Suncrest's sanctuary with an Old Timey Hymn Sing and music by WhiteWater.

Make plans now to enjoy this fellowship day - two churches, twice as much fun - lots of details in newsletters and weekly bulletins.


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. 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
