Office Hours

The church office closes for lunch between 1:15pm - 2:15pm Monday - Thursday.  We close on Fridays at 1:00pm. During these times, you will receive a message recording when you call and the doors will not be monitored for building access.  If you have an appointment with a staff member, that staff member will meet you at the door to let you in. There will be no one to let you inside the building unless you have an appointment. 

JUMP is pleased once again to offer Summer Camp! Our camp is called Alissa’s Friends because we are honoring one of our Preschool moms who came up with the idea and developed it a few years ago. She passed away from cancer and we named our camp after her to honor her memory.

Discerning A Way Forward

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 3rd meeting was held on Sunday, February 19th at 3:00pm in the Sanctuary.  Pastor David  arranged to have our District Superintendent, Rev. Bev Coppley present the benefits of remaining a United Methodist Church.  

On March 1st, Pastor David held a Town Hall Q&A meeting in the Sanctuary concerning Discernment, Disaffiliation and continuing United Methodist Church. 

A called Church Council meeting was held on Thursday, March 30th.  The purpose of the meeting was to receive the recommendation from the Discernment Team regarding the issue of disaffiliation.  As always, the Council meeting was open to all church members. The Discernment Team recommended that we not enter the process to disaffiliate.  Their recommendation can be found here

The Church Council voted and agreed with the recommendation.
