A note from the Pastor:

Second Ave. United Methodist Church is a place for all people. We invite you to come worship with us, walk through life together with us, and together may we continue to grow in the knowledge and likeness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you do need more specifics about visiting 2nd Ave. Church please continue reading below.

If you are thinking of visiting us, there is plenty of parking in our four parking lots. And we promise we will not embarrass you. Worship leaders will not publicly introduce you as a visitor or require you to speak to the congregation. We won’t ask you to participate in singing or prayers – unless you wish to. You may sit wherever you wish and just observe -whatever is most comfortable for you. We will welcome you quietly and with God’s love.

Our Sunday morning worship times last about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes. If you are thinking of visiting us, please do! You will find hope, purpose, care, and nurture for your whole person and your whole family at 2nd Ave United Methodist Church.

You are invited to come and join as we celebrate the mystery and wonder of Christmas.
