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 ANY Sunday morning at 8:30 or 10:45.  Dress is casual to business casual. (Wear whatever is comfortable!)

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

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

Ray VanderLaan Video Bible Study

 

“Faith Lessons” are fascinating Bible studies with tour guide and historian Ray Vander Laan. Filmed in Israel and Turkey where Bible events actually took place, Ray Vander Laan weaves together historical, cultural, and geographical contexts to reveal keen insights into how people in biblical times understood God and Jesus' teaching . We are in our fifth installment of “Faith Lessons” titled The Early Church.  We meet Sunday evenings 6 to 7:30 in Seekers Hall.

The remaining sessions include:   “The Salt of the Earth”, “Where Satan Lives,”  “The Mark of the Beast,” and “Hot or Cold.” 

BRING THE FREE ONE TO CHURCH FOR SCOTTS RUN

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.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL JULY 27-31

Plans are under way now - and we need volunteers for a very special time in our children's lives - VBS - a time when they can grow closer to God. Please consider being involved in this important ministry - sign up!
