The United Methodist Church...
... was first established in Arroyo Grande, California, in 1884 as pioneer families came looking for land. Our heritage and challenge is to carry on as those before us, advancing the Kingdom of God in Arroyo Grande. The people of the United Methodist Church believe in God and each other. If you're searching for something to believe in, our hearts, our minds and our doors are always open.
A Worshiping Church
In a very real way, we find out who we are
and what life is all about through worship.
When we worship God, then doing what
God wants is the goal of life. It is what life
is for and what life is all about.
Come worship with us at 8:30am and 10:30am Sundays.
A Praising Church
Our worship services are filled with contemporary and traditional music. We are inspired in worship by our Chancel Choir, Grande Ringers handbell choir and The Lord's Crew praise band. It is a joy to proclaim the glory of God in song and music.
A Friendly Church
We recognize that we cannot be Christians in isolation. As people of God we promise to uphold the church with our prayers, presence, gifts and service. We warmly welcome newcomers as we experience God's love through all of God's people.
A Teaching Church
Study groups for all ages enable us to learn and grow in the Word of the Lord. For United Methodists, the Bible is the record of God's people living out God's promise.
