Thanks for joining us here at Pendleton Center United Methodist Church! We hope that through visiting here, you will get to know us a little better: who we are, what we believe and our hope for you. Maybe you would consider yourself a follower of Christ, or maybe you're new to the idea of church and God and are still trying to decide how these things might fit into your life. No matter where you fall, we're glad that you're here!
In many ways, Pendleton Center United Methodist Church is like other churches: We worship God, celebrate sacraments, and have Christian Education for our children.
In some ways, we are different. Our congregation is larger and younger than most churches. This allows us to offer activities, programs, and possibilities not found in many congregations.
The most significant difference is our commitment to helping heal spiritually broken people. Many of our people have been away from church for a long time when they start coming to church. We provide a safe, welcoming environment for people to explore a relationship with God from wherever they are on their spiritual journey.
When you join us for a worship service, you can expect to hear the truth about who God is and what He wants for your life. Services are meant to feel relaxed and comfortable while we expect an exciting encounter with God! All ages are welcome in the service, and we encourage a multi-generational community. We sing the old hymns and new songs. You will hear the organ and guitars and drums. We also celebrate age-old traditions like the Lord’s Prayer and celebrating the sacraments of communion and baptism. The messages are designed to connect the Bible to our everyday life and will include film clips, stories, and dramatic elements to help us learn. It is the church at its best: both ancient and contemporary!
You are invited to join us in seeking God’s transforming power in your life and the lives of those you love.
