Welcome to the website of Spruce Pine United Methodist Church!
The mission of Spruce Pine United Methodist Church is to be a beacon on a hill spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ through: worship, fellowship, education, nurturing, and service. We are thankful you are visiting us in this way, and hope that you will come and visit us in person to see what we are really about.
At SPUMC we seek to welcome you as God in Christ has welcomed us (Romans 15:7). We would especially like to welcome you if you might be new to our church, or if you might be new to this whole “church” thing altogether. We hope you won’t be nervous at all just showing up one Sunday: it doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, what you’re wearing, what you believe, or what you don’t believe – you are welcome. Please know that you will be among friends: the rest of us are just as “messed up” as you are :) and we hope you feel at home.
The folks here at Spruce Pine UMC are a people who have been embraced by the grace of God in Jesus the Christ. Through Christ our lives have been changed by the God who made us for a purpose, who loved us long before we ever knew it, who has forgiven us for our sins, who has overcome death with abundant life, who is re-making us as a people of faith, hope, love, peace, and joy, and who is mending our broken world through broken people such as us. In short, we believe that Jesus saves, and that we best experience that salvation together. So by the grace of God we are learning how to love God, how to love our neighbors, and how to love ourselves as he does. Lord knows, we still have a long ways to go before we get there, but we have learned there is nothing in life so wonderful as following Jesus in his great adventure in grace.
We invite you to join us on that journey. If you do, you’ll find a people who worship together, who grow together, who serve together, who laugh together, who love God and neighbor together: and who will love you together.
