You made it to this sacred cyberspace! We’re sure glad you found us here and we’d love to meet you in person! We gather together quite often as you’ll see in the news feed below. You’ll find that we are committed to reaching out to our community, Christ-centered education for all ages, caring for those who call QUMC home, and weekly gathering to give God thanks for the blessings of life!
Please consider joining us at any of the events listed below. Especially consider joining us in worshiping God on Sunday Mornings at either 8:30 or 10:30. If you are interested in celebrating the Lord’s Supper (Communion or Eucharist as some call it), we share that together every 8:30 service and on the first Sunday of every month at the 10:30 service. If you prefer worship with choral leadership, perhaps you’d like our 10:30 service!
We pray that you’ll sense the warm presence of hospitality and kindness when you enter for worship! Please contact us if you have any questions ahead of visiting us!
Many of us need a time to remember and reflect during the Advent & Christmas season. Times to grieve, mourn, and lament permeate the landscape of Scripture. A time to light candles and to commune with God can apply a salve to the soul. If you are in need of a time such as this, join others on Wed. Dec. 21st at Noon or at 7pm for a time of silent prayer, meditation, candle-lighting, and communion if you so choose.
