Welcome

We are the McCormick United Methodist Church (MUMC). Our congregation loves God and cares for one another. We share in each other’s joys and provide mutual support and prayers during tough times. We have fun as we work together doing the work of God. We reach up to God and reach out to our friends and neighbors both near and far.

We welcome visitors with the same love and energy. The members of MUMC care about you and your well-being. We want to get to know you, your joys, your concerns, your prayer needs and your spiritual gifts.

We invite you to look around our site, be sure to look at the sermons, pictures, missions and calendar. Then go to the "PLAN A VISIT" link above and join us at either the 8:30 AM or 11:00 AM service on Sunday!

OUR LIFE TOGETHER: REFLECTION BY REV. DR. PAUL WOOD
JUNE 28
Worship is a privilege, I wrote last week. It’s an obligation. Worship feeds that God-given hunger we have to encounter God. Simply by showing up on Sundays we witness to those who don’t know Christ as their Lord and Savior.

I met Jesus Christ years ago and gave my life to him. So am I all I can be? Of course not. I am still a sinner saved by grace. Worship reminds me that I am a jar of clay (2 Corinthians 4:7). Only God can make me into what I can be….a holy and righteous person who glorifies God in all that I do.

Worship helps me along the road to what we Wesleyan Christians call “Christian perfection.” Confessing my sins; reflecting on the very human men and women who inhabit the Bible; hearing Jesus’ call to be “perfect….as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48); all of that leads me to fall upon the mercy of God to make me a “new creation.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

So I am not finished maturing in Christ. I will not be until Christ completes his saving work in me in heaven. And so I worship. See you in church next Sunday!

SALKEHATCHIE SUMMER SERVICE
Before completing their work on a mobile home in McCormick, the Salkehatchie missioners made and signed a cross. They painted indoor rooms, built two ramps for the wheelchair-bound homeowner and did much more for him. His brother lives next-door to him and contributed greatly to the carpentry work.

Salkehatchie Summer Service is a pioneering servant ministry at selected sites in South Carolina involving high school and college age youth, adult community leaders and persons of different cultures. This program of the South Carolina Conference Board of Global Ministries consists of a number of work camps for United Methodist youth in South Carolina.

The Baker Creek Camp volunteers rehabbed five McCormick area homes and developed friendships with the homeowners. The seventy-five missioners came from as far away as Chesterfield and Dorchester counties and as close by as Saluda and Troy. They enjoyed lunch and dinner at numerous churches including Republican United Methodist, Shiloh AME and McCormick United Methodist.
