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!



What's Happening

Sunday, February 7, was a Special Day at MUMC! 
Many, many thanks to Rev.Dr. Paul Wood and Rev. Kay Wood for bringing such a dynamic duo to our church!  Jonathan Cring and Janet Clazzy are most definitely talented Christian musicians!  !  It was incredibly uplifting and so much fun to share with our community. We all felt blessed that they shared their talents with us at both services!  Jonathan mentioned his website, it’s located at www.jonathots.com.

FEB 10  6PM
The Lenten Season will begin on Wednesday evening, February 10, at 6PM.  This is a service of repentance and includes the imposition of ashes on each person’s forehead.  We will also privately write down some of our sins and then symbolically burn them following the service.  This is a unique and somber service. Plan to bring a friend or neighbor!

Members and friends, let me encourage you to accept this special invitation from St. John’s UMC in Batesburg-Leesville. Rev. Bob Borom does an excellent job portraying the first Methodist bishop. – Paul Wood

Our Church will again be sponsoring a Mission Trip to Lumberton, NC. The date of the work project will be April 10 - 17. The plan is to leave McCormick following Church Service on Sunday, April 10, work Mon. thru Fri. noon and return home Fri. PM. Sleeping accommodations and meals will be provided. This is a great opportunity to show and provide Christian Love and Fellowship for others, and to enjoy Fellowship with your fellow Church members. Look for a signup sheet in Fellowship Hall and more information will be forthcoming. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Bruce Motsinger.

A special project for 2016 was introduced at the conclusion of the UMW Winter unit meeting that invites participation from any and all members of the church.  A golden Box of Blessings is being placed in the fellowship hall where the opportunity presents itself to make small contributions throughout the year as we count our blessings from God.  At the end of the year, the gifts will be counted and a check for that amount will be given to A Place For Us Ministries located in The Alcoves in Greenwood, a non-profit, residential Christian program that exists to minister to the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of girls facing crisis situations.

Bruce Motsinger opened the meeting with prayer.  We then enjoyed a great meal prepared by Gail Nordyke.  Our devotion was led by Bruce Motsinger.  The devotion was inspired by the book, “Men on the Go” and it focused on the importance of our sharing the gifts we have with others and our being thankful for the things others do for us.

Our speaker was Byron Thompson, a member of the McCormick County Council and our UMM group.  Byron gave an update on the re-development of Savannah Lakes Village (SLV) which is a cooperative effort by SLV, McCormick County, and Fairview Hospitality Resort, LLC.

The next UMM dinner meeting is scheduled for March 1, 2016, at 6:00 p.m.  Byron Thompson will lead our devotional.  Dinner will be provided by Dan Tutt and Don Tummons.
