Welcome to Schweitzer United Methodist Church

Schweitzer UMC is a place to gather with people from all generations and walks of life to engage with the living God.

Hebrews 10:24-25 calls us to …consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another. Every week, hundreds of people find hope and encounter new life during our weekly worship services. From the nursery and fun-filled children’s service to the powerful and inspiring message, there is something for everyone!

Schweitzer offers interactive programs for your kids to enjoy while you are attending a service. We have programs for all ages that build your child’s relationship with Jesus Christ and the Schweitzer community. Every service offers programs for the whole family and lasts one hour. Visit the Connection Center and learn about our different ministries, small groups and volunteer opportunities.

First-time guests receive a special gift just for visiting!
