Schweitzer UMCNews

Every church is different. Congregations have their unique DNA. Schweitzer is known as a church of Community Impact, Caring Hearts, All Generations, Engaging Worship and Deeper Discipleship. We believe that God has placed in our hearts to pursue these five attributes with passion and excellence. We are excited to tell the stories of people’s lives being transformed through all that is occurring. Join us in worship, check out the stories on our website and in social media and join us in God’s good work. Be Part of This!
