University United Methodist Church is a welcoming, diverse, reconciling congregation that embraces persons of all faith traditions and spiritual seekers. We are an engaged spiritual community, committed to personal growth and social transformation.
We embrace Jesus’ message that God loves and accepts every person. We celebrate the diversity of God’s creation and cherish persons of every age, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnic background, marital or socioeconomic status, physical or mental ability, nationality, or education, to fully participate in the life of our faith community.
We value social justice–from our own urban neighborhood to the coffee farms of Latin America; personal spiritual growth; and environmental stewardship. Our local outreach/fellowship ministries include a food pantry and clothes closet and twice-monthly free community/church breakfast, among other activities.
We are a church of Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors. Regardless of where you might be on your spiritual journey, we invite you to be a part of a warm, caring and compassionate faith community working to make a difference in our city and in our world.
