WORSHIPSunday at 10:30 AM - Sunday Worship
Welcome, and thanks for your interest in Elma United Methodist Church. We believe that we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in the Elma community. That belief shapes everything we do, from our worship on Sunday mornings to our ecumenical community dinner on the last Sundays serving Elma's homeless, elderly, families, and those that wish to fellowship together; to our Harvest Festival in the fall for all ages. We find that when we express God’s love in the community around us, we experience God’s love in a deeper way. That experience binds us together as a body.
Elma is a diverse and energetic community. Our congregation reflects that diversity and that enthusiasm too. We hope you’ll visit Elma UMC and experience it for yourself. We’ll be right here, where we’ve been since 1884 —in the heart of Elma.
