to Coal City United Methodist Church

A community of faith. That is who we are at Coal City United Methodist Church. We pray that over the course of these last 14 months of unprecedented experiences, you have found comfort and hope through the worship and community of Coal City United Methodist Church. Whether you have worshipped online or in person, found a way to volunteer in ministry or prayed at home, we consider you our family and we care about you. As we shift our attention to the next step in re-opening, we want to make sure that all people in our family feel Loved and Safe.

As we look to summer and seek to welcome one another back home to our family, we want you to know that Loved and Safe is at the forefront of our mission. We want to offer worship where everyone will feel not just the welcome that is en-grained in our Church DNA, but we want you to feel Loved to come back home and Safe to be back home. The Worship Committee put out a survey asking about how to best meet everyone's needs this summer while also seeking to raise the level of community and fellowship, because let's face it...we haven't seen one another's faces for many months. The results of the survey were overwhelming as 80% of those surveyed wanted us to hold one Sunday morning worship service outside each Sunday.

So starting this Sunday, May 30, we will hold one Sunday morning worship service each week OUTSIDE at 9AM. This will be the only Sunday morning worship service and will be live-streamed. These summer Sundays outside will provide opportunity for everyone to be together for worship. We are working hard at making sure the music, message, and ministry connects us to God and Jesus Christ! In addition, we will have coffee and beverages available outside and if you want to stay after worship and continue to visit outside...that is great as well!! We will also be looking at holding child-centered, family oriented activities later in the summer. If it rains or the weather does not cooperate, we will communicate through email, Facebook and a text message as to the change of plans. This Sunday schedule will be revisited by July to consider what is ahead.

This is your home. Welcome home.

The Coal City United Methodist Church is a multi-generational church family that welcomes children, seniors, and those in between to exciting worship, study, and fellowship experiences.

Some have been members of the Coal City community and the United Methodist Church their whole lives. Others have recently moved to our area and found a home among us. All are welcome.

From the children's moment where the children of our church hear a message in a language they can understand; to carefully crafted biblically based sermons that speak to our current reality as youth and adults; to a variety of high-caliber musical expressions of our faith from classical to contemporary, from organ to oboe, from piano to projected multi-media experiences, there is a place for you in worship. Our services are on the traditional side of blended - familiar, comfortable, but far from stuffy.

All are welcome here.

With choices from Bible studies, to women's groups, children's choir and more - there are so many ways to be an active part of the CCUMC community.

The mission of the Coal City United Methodist Church is to be a sanctuary where prayer, worship, acts of mercy and study of scripture
empower persons to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.
