Suncrest United Methodist Church is known for its warm, friendly people sharing in a common desire to find God’s purpose for our lives and celebrate God’s presence.
God is in the handshake of a friend as you’re greeted at the church door. God is in the eyes of the children as they gather at the altar for “wiggletime” each Sunday morning. God is in the spirit of our youth and college students as they travel in Appalachia or beyond each year to help families less fortunate than their own. God is present in the music in which we together share in worship. And God is even in the laughter and camaraderie of our fellowship time, church events, and family gatherings.
We are people just like you, and we’re growing closer to God through the Suncrest United Methodist Church.
Suncrest UMC—Adopted June 22, 2015
Suncrest United Methodist Church is called to the ministry of the sacred worth of all people. We embrace as a gift the diversity of our neighborhood and world. We recognize our human family’s diversity of race, ethnicity, age, faith history, economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, physical and mental ability, education, and any other difference, real or perceived. We affirm that all people are created in the image of God and as beloved children of God, all are worthy of God’s love and grace. We welcome the full inclusion of all people in the life and ministry of Suncrest United Methodist Church as we journey toward reconciliation through Christ. We recognize that there are differences among us, but believe that we can love alike even though we may not think alike. We proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination in the church or in society and know that everyone’s participation in our ministries enriches us. We invite all people to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.
