Growing Spiritually and showing Christ’s Love through action in our community
Visiting De Graff United Methodist Church
Where is the church?
We are located at 1839 County Road 24 South just outside De Graff, Ohio. (This is a link to driving directions.)
Where do I park?
We have handicap parking designated, and there is parking on the South side of the church.
What time are the services and what should I expect?
Sunday School starts at 9:30 am and our Worship service is at 10:30.
What about my kids? Do you offer childcare? Are they welcome in Worship?
Children are welcome to attend the church service. For parent’s convenience, we also offer nursery care. All children are invited to participate in a special “Children’s Moment’s” during the worship service and then are dismissed to attend Jr. Church, or they may sit with their family in Worship. The first Sunday of every month we have a "noisy" offering when the children collect coins and then stay for the service.
What do I wear?
Come as you are! You’ll see members and visitors in casual jeans and boots, as well as dresses and suits. This is God’s House and ALL are welcome!
Can I take communion?
All who seek to grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ are invited to His table, regardless of age or membership. Also, we serve grape juice as opposed to wine.
We affirm Christ's real presence in the sacrament of Holy Communion as a means of grace and an act of remembrance of Christ's sacrifice on the cross. Christ presides as the host as all are welcomed regardless of age, denomination, or membership. Partaking in the holy meal, we are nurtured and strengthened in faith by the symbols of his body and blood.
Is there really a place for me? How do I get involved? How can I make a difference?
Our church’s goal is to reach out and love people until they can’t help but see Jesus and come to know Him personally and walk faithfully with Him as Lord of their lives. To this end, our church calendar and newsletter, “The Circuit Writer“, are great places to start to learn more about events and announcements in the church. Our youth ministries are always eager for volunteers. We offer Sunday School classes for all ages each Sunday. Our teens group meets every Sunday evening. Our Basket Ministry reaches out with a message of hope and love through Christ to people who are ill, hurting or struggling, and our Missions Team serves to assist people in critical need in our community through food baskets, holiday meal assistance, and networking with other service agencies with a senior lunch every Thursday. Because Christ tells us that ‘as we have done to the least of these, so we have done unto Him’, we strive to live out the love and grace that we know to be found through Christ alone. Many things are happening at the De Graff United Methodist Church. We’ll keep you posted on the progress. We are excited about what God is doing in and through us and invite you to come along and partner with us to give God the glory!
