IF YOU ARE NEW
Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here with us.
Welcome! Park Slope United Methodist Church is a community with open arms, a warm spirit, and a compassionate heart. We want “church” to signify a living, breathing community reflecting the love of God and the radical teachings of Jesus. We seek to care for each other and our neighborhood, to help each other grow spiritually, and to work together for social justice.
Our morning worship service is informal while acknowledging the traditions of our faith. Feel free to dress casually – come as you are. We very much welcome children and people of all abilities to sing, pray, worship, and reflect. On Wednesday evening, we invite you to a time of meditation at our Taize service.
If you are visiting, feel free to look around, get acquainted, explore with us. The Spirit is always doing new things, and we try to create the flexibility for you and the church to do new things, too.
Some of us are lifelong Methodists, others from very different traditions and some of us just stepped inside a church for the first time. Some of us attend protests, sign petitions, serve meals and staff shelters. Some of us spend time in prayer or study. Some of us celebrate God’s beauty by working in our garden or participating in music and the arts. We are a community that takes the Bible seriously, but not literally, and we expect it to say different things to different people. We explore it, ask it questions, wrestle with our readings, and respect the interpretations of others.
Park Slope United Methodist is a part of the Reconciling Ministries Network, a national group of United Methodists that intentionally welcomes all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, physical or mental capacity, and education, socio-economic or marital status.
We usually have a newcomer coffee social after the morning service each month on the fourth or fifth Sunday. Look under the events section for the next social.
If you are searching for faith, hope, service, restoration - we have a community to offer you.
