Our Discernment Committee offered a forum on Sunday, October 23rd.  This forum allowed us to share where we’ve been as a denomination and where we are as a church.  This was an opportunity for us to come together and discuss these topics and ask questions. Here, you can access the video and PDF documents "A," "B," & "C" that was presented at the meeting. 

A second forum was held on Sunday, January 8th. Rev. Earl Bradshaw from Mt. Pleasant UMC was here to offer a presentation on the Global Methodist Church.  This meeting was not recorded.

Our next “Discerning A Way Forward” Town Hall meeting will be held on Sunday, February 19th at 3:00pm in the Sanctuary.  Pastor David has arranged to have our District Superintendent, Rev. Bev Coppley present the benefits of remaining a United Methodist Church.  We appreciate your patience during this time as we all continue the discernment process.



The month of March comes with windy, and sometimes, unpredictable weather, so who better to hear from than a meteorologist? On March 7th at 11:30 am, come learn interesting weather facts as you eat yummy food and fellowship with other senior adults from JUMC. Our mission focus for this month is The Blessing Box. To help support this feeding ministry, please bring non-perishable food items with you to Young at Heart on March 7th. We look forward to seeing you there!

The cost is $5.00 per person. You cay pay in advance when you register or pay at the door.
