Welcome! Our doors are open to everyone and diversity is very important to us. Visiting any new church can be intimidating and you may have several questions. We’ve attempted to answer a few of them here, but if you still have questions, please call the church office at 330-657-2567.
Q: What types of Sunday services do you have?
A: Due to COVID restrictions our services have changed – please contact us for the latest info.
Q: How should I dress?
A: Come as you are – we’re casual.
Q: Where should I park?
A: Parking is available in the church lot behind the church or in any available legal space on Peninsula’s streets. Note: outside of church hours our parking lot also serves the public with a volunteer donation box. Church worship service attendees do not donate for parking.
Q: What if I have physical limitations?
A: We have a ramp entrance that leads to the sanctuary and a ramp entrance leading to the kitchen/reception area and restrooms.
Q: Do I have to be a member of the church or be a United Methodist Member to attend?
A: No, everyone is welcome to participate. Membership is open to anyone and everyone upon request.
Q: Can I participate in Communion?
A: Yes, all who are looking to have a relationship with God are welcome at our communion table. You do not need to be a member.
Q: What options are there for my children?
A: Children of all ages are welcome to worship with us. We offer childcare for toddlers and preschoolers up to 4 years old and Sunday School for children 4-12 years old (during the school year schedule.) We operate under a Safe Sanctuary Policy for child protection.
Q: What opportunities are available for music expression?
A: Music is an important part of PUMC. Everyone is invited to sing in the choir and share their musical talents. Music is part of the children’s program also.
Q: Are LGBTQ people welcome too?
A: Absolutely! We not only accept LGBT people, we celebrate them! At our church, ALL MEANS ALL.
