Frequently Asked Questions

  • Christ United Methodist Church (CUMC) is a large church. Will I get lost in the crowds?

CUMC is undoubtedly a large church with many members – but this allows us to offer a great many programs that might not be available at smaller churches. And, we can’t recommend enough that you involve yourself in a small group. It’s amazing how fast our large church seems to shrink when you get to know your small group and the other volunteers in your area of ministry.

  • How do I find out what’s going on at CUMC?

If you read the Sunday-service Worship Guide announcements and our weekly Snapshot email newsletter, you’ll keep up with almost everything that’s happening at Christ United Methodist Church. Also, our Senior Pastor Don Underwood distributes a weekly email newsletter which highlights important activities in the life of the church. Another great way, of course, is to explore the website, just like you’re doing now!

  • How do I get involved with choir or other musical groups?

CUMC’s Music Ministry welcomes interested people with talent and enthusiasm. For more information on joining these ministries, check out Traditional/Blended Worship Arts or Contemporary Music.

CUMC offers dynamic Sunday school classes for all age groups. You can find more detailed information at the Sunday school pages for Adults, Youth, or Children.

  • What do Methodists believe?

CUMC is a church family that believes in God’s love, the person and work of Jesus Christ, and the uniqueness of each individual’s spiritual journey. All are welcome here.

As United Methodists, we have a unique identity yet also share a common heritage with all Christians. Our beliefs are articulated well on our denomination’s belief page at
