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!

MUMC FAMILY SAYS GOODBYE TO PAUL AND KAY
Paul used his Grandfather’s Bible to read the verse for his sermon, “Future Vision.” Paul shared his singing talents with the combined congregation by singing a solo for us, titled “By Faith”.  His last sermon reminded us to accept change and to remember the constancy of God as we carry out our visions.   His family was there Sunday, including his son and daughter-in-law and his mother.  
MUMC will miss Rev. Dr. Paul Wood and Rev. Kay Wood, and we pray that they will have a smooth transition into retirement. Words, songs, smiles and even a few tears were in abundance in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday as each of us said our farewells.

There are several photos and even a short video of Paul’s solo at http://mccormickumc.org/pauls-and-kays-retirement-june-2017
