Dear Friends,

Many churches are moving to online worship services. I am a bit old fashioned and I wanted to find a way for us during these last weeks of Lent to be both flexible, community-oriented and responsive to our current situation. Below are links to some documents. There is a guide for home worship and the materials for this Sunday's worship. Let's try something old and something new. If you have a Facebook account, you can join us live at 10 a.m. on Sunday. The video of that session will be posted here soon after it ends. Here is my challenge to you.

  1. Take seriously the guide to home worship.
  2. Take a photo of your home worship gathering; email the photo to me, or post on our Facebook page.
  3. Find a worship buddy. This can be someone in your family; a friend, another church member. There are reflection questions for our worship time. Share your thoughts, prayers, photos with your worship buddy.
  4. Share the joy of being together, even if we are not physically together.

About Us

Sumner United Methodist Church has been located in the heart of Sumner for more than 125 years. Our worship service is a blended style of music, prayer, scripture and fellowship. We honor the tradition of open minds, open hearts and open doors. Our mission is to be faithful in growing closer to God. We are rethinking church for the 21st century, just as we have faithfully served the past 125 years.

A Welcome Letter From Our Pastor

It is a joy to welcome you to our church's website. So, if you are still just checking out the "church scene", thank you for allowing us to help you in your search. Or, if you are a committed follower who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at Sumner UMC. We welcome everyone to our church and want you to feel at home.

I was appointed to the church in the summer of 2011 and was welcomed by a grace-filled congregation. Our worship of God is central to the life of our church and as United Methodists. We offer a 10am service on Sunday morning and special services during the year.

We have experienced the grace and goodness of God and want to share that grace with others. We have a strong heartbeat for missions, for spiritual growth, fellowship and new ideas, even as we offer our existing ones. We believe there is nothing bigger than the grace of God through Jesus. Please take time to explore our website and to feel free to reach us for additional information. We would love to have you join us for any of the activities of the church.

Come and experience that something special in our church, the overflowing grace of God.

Pastor Pam Osborne
