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. 


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 motivated our congregation to collect more than 90 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.

That's just one of their activities and mission events. Watch the newsletter, the Sunday Bulletin and the Children's Ministries Site

 Children's Choir practice is in the choir room (top floor) following our 10:45 service on Sundays. Parents should request information from Dr. Sun Jung Lee: sunkistpop@gmail.com

We are especially eager to enjoy what our Children's Choir has been working on lately: Join us Sunday night, December 14, in the Sanctuary when our Children and Youth present a Christmas program.  Mark your calendar now.


Our Youth

In addition to regular meetings on Wednesday evenings at 7, this group gets together for mission activities, as well as fun activities!

Let’s join in helping community agencies as they meet our neighbors’ needs.

Drop by Seekers Hall with a few odds and ends that people use every day without thinking about them - place them in an appropriate cart or bin. Need ideas?

We were blessed to be a blessing.

 

Stewardship -  Caring for what has been entrusted to us.

We celebrate stewardship: Using the gifts we have to take care of what God has entrusted to us.  Throughout November, we heard a familiar Gospel passage from Matthew 28, 

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."

As we look forward to the many plans and programs we make for Spruce Street and our community, think about our gifts, and how we can make disciples. How can we transform our world, one disciple at a time?

If making a pledge is one of the ways you wish to help Spruce Street make disciples, the church office accepts pledge cards any time.  Please be sure to sign and date yours before turning it in.

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. 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
