Service Times

Sunday 10:00 am Sunday School








We invite you to share in the Gospel in song, altar call prayer and preaching at the oldest Black United Methodist Church in Missouri. In 2011 we will be 165 years old. Come participate in the traditional Black Church worship experience, where ALL are liberated in Christ!

Contemporary music with drums, Hammond organ, and keyboard. A welcoming congregation excited about how God is actively participating in everyone's lives.
Also our average attendance now as of 11-9-2010 is 58!
Every Fourth Sunday is Children and Youth Sunday where they are active in all phases of worship; reading of scripture, singing, praise dancing,ushering, and periodically the preaching by a young minister who is 23 years old.

Church can happen anywhere.  It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
