Located in North Muskegon, Community United Methodist Church is a loving, caring, and welcoming home for all who seek to have or to grow a relationship with God. Firmly grounded in the beliefs and traditions of the Methodist faith, we are a group of people who love Christ, love each other, and want to serve the community we live and work in. We invite you to experience worship with our family; we will help you grow closer to God.
Open hearts, open minds, open doorsWHAT WE BELIEVE As United Methodists, our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world! This covenant is faithfully lived out by our participation in the ministries of the church by our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. WORSHIP SERVICE We gather every Sunday morning at 9:00am (traditional) and 11:00am (contemporary). Our worship service presents Biblical truths in engaging, powerful, and applicable ways. Our service is held in our beautiful sanctuary, where members and visitors sit in comfortable pews and join in worship. During our 1st service (9am) our worship is led by our organist and choir that consists of the classic hymns of our faith, contemporary choruses, and choral anthems. During our 2nd service (11am) our worship is led by our praise band and consists of contemporary worship songs. WHAT TO EXPECT ON SUNDAY MORNING Upon visiting CUMC, you will find greeters at each entrance. Any of these people are available to answer questions you may have or to lead you in the right direction. In the summer, we offer a service at 11:00am at the park across the street from the church (Custer Park). Folding chairs are set up for all to use but you are welcome to bring a seat or blanket, if that’s more comfortable for you. After both services, you’re welcome to stop by for coffee and cookies in our main gathering area. Holy Communion at CUMC, which is on the first Sunday of every month, is open to all believers. We welcome our guests to participate. What do I wear? At Community UMC, we believe that it’s the heart that matters, not what you wear. Therefore, you will find those who like to dress up and those who like to dress casual. Feel free to come in what’s most comfortable for you. What about my infant or toddler? If you choose, our attentive, secure nursery staff is available upstairs for children birth through 3. Please see a greeter or go to the welcome desk for more information. What about my elementary children? Kids, pre-kindergarten through 4th grade, will be dismissed from the service after the children’s message (which is typically in the first 15 minutes). They will gather upstairs in our children’s center and have a worship service that is geared for them that includes games, stories, crafts, and more. (KIDS CHURCH IS AVAILABLE DURING BOTH SERVICES) What about middle school? Our leaders are fostering a place for 5th-7th graders to connect with each other while growing a deeper relationship with God. Every Sunday at 6pm, in the fellowship hall, tweens will engage in food, worship, games, & fun. What about senior high? Our teens get the unique opportunity each week to eat, listen to music, laugh, discuss, pray, experience creative worship, hear teachings, and serve others. With gifted, creative youth leaders who understand the peaks and pits of being a teen, our youth can experience what it really means to be a follower of Jesus. 8th – 12th grade youth meet each Sunday evening at the church from 6-8pm.
