First Steps

When you visit Missouri UMC we want you to feel right at home as soon as you walk onto our campus.  Here’s what you can expect:

Our Mission: Missouri United Methodist Church exists to connect all people with Jesus Christ.  We do this by welcoming enthusiastically, growing deeply and serving courageously.

Parking: Parking is available in the church lot at the corner of 10th & Elm. Additional parking is available in the Hitt Street Garage located diagonally across the street from church lot.  A golf cart shuttle is provided between the garage and the church. Street parking is also available, at no charge, throughout the downtown area on Sundays.

Entering the Building: There are a number of ways to enter the building. 

  • Enter directly into the Sanctuary via the red doors on Ninth Street.
  • Enter into the Connector area through either set of glass doors off of the parking lot or through the glass doors located in the Courtyard area on Ninth Street. 

Once in the Building: You will be greeted by a member of our Hospitality Team regardless of which door you enter.  They will be happy to help you find your way throughout the building and answer whatever questions you might have.

Child Friendly: Our hope is that your child will have the best possible experience while in our care. While children are always welcome at our worship services, adults are available to care for your child while you attend worship. Our childcare workers and volunteers enjoy their ministry of caring for your children.

Every United Methodist church has a Safe Sanctuaries Policy “to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all of our children and youth.”   Our church is a Safe Sanctuary Church for Children and Youth.  Parents will be asked to sign their children in and out of nursery and child care.

On Sunday mornings look for the check-in stations on the bottom floor of Whittler Hall (historic end of the building) or CLC Hall (newer side of the building.

During the 8am Worship Service Nursery Care is available for children 5 years old and younger.

During the 9:15am Worship Service Nursery Care is available for children 3 years old and younger. Children over the age of 3 can go to the worship service in the sanctuary and participate with their families. After opening music, prayers and Children's Time, they can follow the crowd to Kids Worship! and Serendipity Choir. If families wish for children to remain in worship, children’s worship bags packed with activities to help them connect to worship are available at the doors.

During the 10:30am Worship Service Nursery Care is available for children 2 years old and younger. Children 3 years old and older begin in age-level classrooms, move to a large group video lesson and return to small groups to participate in active learning.

A Comfortable Environment

We strive to provide an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming.  Come as you are, no dress code!

A Weekly Order of Service & Announcements

Our ushers will give you a bulletin when you arrive.  In it you will find ample information to guide you through the worship service as well as information about current program activities.

Friendly Follow-up

We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to send you a welcome packet and an invitation to join us again. In order to do that we ask you to please provide your name and contact information on the bulletin tear-off sheet and leave it in the offering plate.
