Grace to you and peace from Jesus Christ our Lord. Welcome to Dewey United Methodist Church, where Jesus is Lord, people are loved, and everyone is welcome. We're not perfect, but we don't expect you to be either. We know you have lots of choices when it comes to choosing a church home. And we know that, like trying on a pair of shoes, one size doesn't fit everyone. But, if you are looking for a church home, where grace is lived, the word proclaimed, the sacraments are celebrated, and where you are loved and can be yourself, we're waiting for you. 

What can I say about The United Methodist Church and specifically Dewey UMC?  Thanks to Rev James Moore, I would offer this explanation:

Number 10: We are a church that encourages a strong pulpit. I know that people come expecting to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed powerfully and at Dewey UMC, with the help of the Lord, I proclaim the gospel (the Good News) as powerfully and passionately as possible.

Number 9: We are a church that encourages a strong warmhearted personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ is the heart of everything we do.

Number 8: We are a world-wide church. You can find a United Methodist church, mission, school or hospital in many villages, towns, or cities around the world. Dewey UMC wants to be your church in your home town.

Number 7: We are an open, inclusive church. Our members come from every culture and socio-economic group. We have more Asian-American and Native-American members than any other denomination. We are second in number of Hispanic-American members. We have been encouraging women to give strong leadership in the church and therefore we have more women clergy than any other denomination.

Number 6: We are a giving church. Every person who joins the UMC promises to serve God and support the church with our prayers, presence, gifts, and service, and our witness. That pledge of loyalty enables us to give seriously to benevolences and mission efforts.

Number 5: We are a church with a family spirit. That family enables us to be there for each other in our joys and sorrows from the cradle to the grave.

Number 4: We are a denomination that owns and operates many colleges, hospitals, children's home and homes for the elderly; plus we operate the oldest church-owned publishing house in the world.

Number 3: We are a church that reaches out with deep compassion to help hurting people. Our UM Committee on Relief is quickly on the scene all over the world wherever there is a natural disaster or any kind of pain or heartache to provide aid and love and care. We feed more than a million children every day.

Number 2: We are a church with a great social creed that has been an inspiration to all in Christendom.

Number 1: We continue Christ's ministry of preaching, teaching, healing and caring.

So, what's so great about being a United Methodist? Simply this: It's a church that touches our hearts and stretches our minds. It's a church that accepts us as we are and yet challenges us to be better. And it's a church that gathers us to worship and then sends us out to serve in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ. Welcome to Dewey UMC
