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, or Wednesday evenings at 7. Our Sunday School hour is at 9:30 on Sunday mornings.


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.


Do you know a child who loves frozen yogurt? We have a Vacation Bible School-themed coloring contest with frozen yogurt as a prize. Pick up an entry and return it to the church by August 8. One entry in each age group will receive a gift from Sweet Frog!


Vacation Bible School is coming at us FAST! Register your child for*

 

August 4-8, 5:30-8 p.m., beginning with a kid-friendly meal.  So parents - no rushing home to get supper, and then rushing to church for VBS. We've taken care of supper. After work, pick up the kids, and head to Spruce Street!

For Vacation Bible School, not only can you register your student on the big "Weird Animals" phrase above, but you can also register yourself as a volunteer! Many hands make light work, and now is the time to share your talents. We also have a sign-up sheet in Seekers Hall for necessary supplies, so get your pencil out! 


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 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.*


Our youth group will be up to some wild activities this summer including Messy Olympics on August 17 at 6 p.m. Watch the Sunday Bulletin and your email from Lizzy for information about their turn to serve at the Community Kitchen (Trinity Episcopal at Spruce & Willey Sts.). 


Flowers enhance our chancel area during our worship service. People have dedicated them in memory of a persons' birthdays, in  honor of birthdays, 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@labs.net

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. Check with the Church Office for open dates:   304-292-3359; sprucestumc@labs.net

Are you creative?

Even if you THINK you aren't, if you can hold a marker, use a pair of scissors, or handle a paint brush - and follow directions - we need you! We want to create an environment for our children to learn Bible stories in a fun setting.  If you can join us on the decorating team, contact LIzzy,  Sarah, or sign up on the VBS web page.
