Why bother with church? Christ is like water to thirst, bread to hunger, healing to hurt… Connecting around this center makes a world of difference. Church is imperfect people gradually coming to know, trust, and reflect a perfect LORD. Why bother with church? Because love grows in and through community until all the world is healed and whole. God calls us to relationship with God and each other.
What is our mission? Our mission alongside the global United Methodist connection is to foster discipleship for the transformation of the world. As Grace continues to fashion us at Snoqualmie UMC we are becoming the voice, hands, and heart of Christ, sharing God's love in the valley and beyond.We are practicing radical hospitality, passionate worship, intentional faith development, risk-taking mission & service, and extravagant generosity. Together in Christ, we are caring for our congregation, welcoming the stranger, and empowered for our callings in community.
What do we believe? The United Methodist movement is all about growing in Grace, fashioned by God's revealing in scripture, tradition, reason and experience…practiced in community…. and poured out in love and service. While engaging the depths of traditional Christianity, we honor a diversity of perspectives and experiences of God. “Devising formal definitions of doctrine has been less pressing for United Methodists than summoning people to faith and nurturing them in the knowledge and love of God.” (United Methodist Book of Discipline, paragraph 101.)
The spiritual power known through small groups, ongoing consultation with scripture, and the work of social action have long been hall marks of the United Methodist experience. Methodist founder John Wesley clearly partnered personal piety with social outreach. In the United Methodist Church, "Love of God is always linked to love of neighbor and to a passionate commitment to seeking justice and renewal in the world." (UM Book of Discipline, Wesleyan Emphases)
Snoqualmie United Methodist is a reconciling congregation, affirming that all means all, and affiliating with Reconciling Ministries Network. (See the Reconciling page of this websitefor more information.) Our leadership has long supported Earth Ministry and Faith Action Network.
