Where God's Love Is Real
Welcome to Dundee United Methodist Church
Sharing God's Healing and Empowering Love
9:00am Sunday School
6:30pm Bible Study, Children/Youth Activities
Failed relationships, bad choices, and worse. I was so tired of running from my problems. I considered going to church, but thought, “If they really knew me they’d never accept me.” But guess what? I was wrong. I was accepted. Most importantly, I found forgiveness from God. I feel like a ton of bricks has been lifted off my shoulders, and while I am not proud of my past I don’t have to run away from it anymore. I am walking toward my future, and I’ve realized that I don’t have to walk alone.
Why People Don't Go To Church
· I’d rather sleep in my own bed than in a pew.
· I feel guilty enough.
· I can’t find my polyester suit and paisley tie.
· They’re hypocrites.
· If I hear one more preacher ask me for money!
· I served my time as a kid.
· My parents taught me enough rules for life.
Why We Are Different
At Dundee United Methodist Church we don’t think that church should be boring. If you visit you’ll discover a place where you can deeply connect with God and be refreshed and inspired. Instead of a minister with dollar signs in his eyes preaching fire and brimstone, you’ll meet a caring pastor who has also felt the pain of mistakes and broken relationships. Rather than shaming you into following a list of rules, he’ll teach you about God’s love and freedom in a way that speaks to real people with real problems who need real solutions. So throw on a pair of jeans and come visit our friendly and down-to-earth community. You won’t be disappointed!
Dundee UMC is a medium sized congregation that serves the central Florida area of Dundee, Winter Haven, Lake Wales, Haines City, Auburndale, and Davenport, but people travel as far as Lakeland and Poinciana to attend. We offer meaningful worship, biblically based preaching, relevant Christian education, and engaging opportunities for service. Our strongest gift as a church family is hospitality. Visitors often say that Dundee UMC is one of the friendliest churches they have ever attended, and many who visit decide to make us their church home. All are welcome!
