Welcome to Alexandria UMC
Take A Moment to Learn More About us
Imagine a church whose mission is to welcome those who are far from God? A church where everyone feels at home from the moment they pull in the parking lot. A church were everyone is important. A place were everyone is loved, valued, and appreciated.
That is who we strive to be.
We're all about relationships
Life isn’t about who you know. It’s about who really knows you.
Life is an adventure
It’s painted with celebrated victories and littered with agonizing defeats. Regardless of the season we are in, we all need the love and support of friends. Your faith journey is both very personal and very social. Life is better together, so we work hard to be a to be a place where you can expect to meet new friends who really care about you.
We believe that the Bible is the greatest source of truth.
We believe the Bible is the greatest source of truth. Worship is centered around the Word, and by this we mean the Word Incarnate, Jesus Christ. We worship God the Father in relationship with Jesus the Son, the One by whom we have access to God. Jesus is the embodiment of God’s Word, the Scripture. Each time we gather for worship, the Bible is explained in ways that all people can understand it, so that the Word is open and accessible for all.
We Value Family
Parenting is hard. We're here to help.
You shouldn't be on your own to do something as important as raising a family. You can be assured that our team will provide a safe and loving environment for you and your family to learn about Jesus. Let's do this together.
You’ll find everything from casual cloths to business suits are our worship experiences. It is not about what you look like or what you wear. Dress in what is comfortable for you!
If you are joining us for the first time, we will not embarrass you by having you stand up; or asking you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for a while. That’s fine with us!
We know that it can be a little scary visiting somewhere for the first time. So we have a special team that goes out of their way to ensure that you feel welcomed and at home. They will answer any questions you have. You and your family are in good hands.
During our worship service we have a Children’s Moments time. Each Sunday a volunteer shares a special message for God’s Children of all Ages. There are a variety of ways used to share messages, including reading a book and puppet ministry. After worship we offer Sunday School / Bible Study for all ages. Our goal is to make Sunday your child’s favorite day of the week.
We believe that generosity is important, but we also believe that we are here to serve you. If it’s your first visit, you are our honored guest. If you begin to regularly attend, you will never be expected to give more than you feel you should.
