Q | How did SUM Church get
A | Groups were meeting in homes as early as 1841. In 1855 the first church building was built at 1st and Main but not used by a congregation during much of the Civil War. After the war, members with a northern view point bought a small lot at 6th & Main and built a church. On July 29, 1900 the current church building was dedicated as the ME Church, South. On January 1, 1938 the northern congregation joined together with the southern congregation, a year before the National merger of the north and south Methodist Episcopal churches.
Q | Why do we do what we do the way
A | We want to share the love of God in Jesus Christ and help each person
discover his or her path on the journey of faith and to take another step in
connecting with God. That’s why we use the music, language, metaphors,
technology and creative art forms of the culture to communicate.
Q | What denomination is SUM Church?
We are affiliated with the Missouri Conference of the United Methodist Church.
