Dear Friend,

Welcome to Whitney United Methodist Church. We want to meet you, learn more about our neighbors and tell you about our church and outreach work.

Whitney UMC is a gathering of joyful, excited followers of Jesus Christ who feed our community Spiritually, Intellectually and Physically. Our Mission Focus is to disciple, serve and provide resources to children and families.   If you are looking for a place to worship or serve the community, some of our activities may interest you.  You are invited to like us on Facebook (Whitney United Methodist Church), watch our calendar or come and see what we are about.

We feed our community Spiritually through weekly worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00am. (currently we broadcast on Youtube.) Worship uses both traditional liturgy and music blended with more casual ways of worshiping to create a space where we can experience and worship the risen God.
We share Communion on the First Sunday of the month. Our adult choir, youth choir and praise band assist with worship and new members to these groups are always welcome.
In addition to the worship service, we offer a nursery for very young children and Sunday school for children and youth.  We also have Bible Study for Adults and have small Prayer and Share community groups that help feed people intellectually and allow them to share their faith journey with others.

Through a deep calling to feed our community physically, out of the example of Christ, we participate in three feeding programs.  Every Saturday, we serve a sack lunch to those in our neighborhood to help tide people over on the weekends. On the third Friday of the month, we serve a to-go hot meal to our neighborhood at 6:00 pm.  We also participate in the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry located at 3209 Overland Rd.  During the winter months we have a warm clothing ministry,  Joseph’s Closet , that distributes coats, hats, gloves scarves and blankets to those who need them.

We are actively seeking new ways to serve our community and invite you to participate.  Should we meet for some activities in different locations?  Do we need to translate materials into another language?  Whitney welcome suggestions on how to make such things happen and we look forward to seeing you again and to knowing you better.

We are excited about who we are as a church and about our calling to be a part of this neighborhood and to disciple, serve and provide resources to children and families.  Please come and see what God is doing in our midst.  If you have questions or wish for additional information, stop by our office Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 1 p.m. or email us at 3315whitneychurch@gmail.com.

Blessings,
Rev. Christina Thompson, Pastor
