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!
ED KILBOURNE RETURNS MOTHER’S DAY
WORSHIP PLUS MOTHER’S DAY CONCERT
Singer, storyteller, and folk-theologian, Ed Kilbourne, will lead both the 8:30 am and 11:00 am worship services and perform in concert at 4:00 pm at McCormick United Methodist Church on Mother's Day (May 8, 2016). McCormick United Methodist Church is located at 200 E Gold Street, in McCormick, South Carolina. This popular artist is known for his collections of moving music, quirky humor, and insightful monologues. He combines his acoustic guitar and singing with a storytelling style often compared to that of Garrison Keillor, the radio humorist from 'Lake Wobegon'.
Ed began his career in the early 60's, singing in folk groups while in high school and college. During a professional career of 8000-plus solo appearances over the last 40 years, he has worked in every region of the United States and toured in Europe. Ed has recorded 23 albums, among them a 4-CD collection of in-concert performances of his stories and songs, "The Grateful Ed Live" released in 2008. His latest CD's are "A World Of Good" and his second greatest hits collection, "The Best Of Ed/Volume 2".
Ed's wife, Kathleen, is a United Methodist minister. She is the director the Master Of Arts In Practical Theology degree program on the Charlotte campus of Pfeiffer University in North Carolina. She also serves as the coordinator of the Center For Deacon Education, a partnership with Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. Ed and Kathleen make their home in Englewood, Florida on Manasota Key.
MAY 15, 4:00 UNTIL 6:00, AT THE MACK PARK
Pentecost will be a great celebration in McCormick County. The Ministerial Alliance invites the entire community to Pentecost Praise in the Park, 4:00 until 6:00, in the MACK Park.
On the first Pentecost, the Holy Spirit fell upon Jesus’ disciples. The Church was born. Thousands heard the gospel preached in their own languages. Thousands professed faith in Christ and received baptism.
The service will include scripture readings, joyous music, a sermon, dance, and prayers for the town and county. An informal parade around the middle of town will launch the event. Our church will carry its banner.
As on Pentecost morning at MUMC, we are all encouraged to wear red clothing to Pentecost Praise in the Park.
