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, 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.


Stewardship

Like many United Methodist Churches at this time of year, we will celebrate stewardship, taking care of what God has entrusted to us by using the gifts we have.  Throughout November, we will hear 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 our church, think about our gifts, and how we can make disciples. How can we transform our world, one disciple at a time?

 

 

 

November 23 is Commitment Sunday. Please join us in transforming our world and making disciples.

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
