A Changing Church for Changing Times

We describe our congregation as a changing church for changing times.  We celebrate our multicultural, multi-generational Church family.

Our church family includes people from Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Kenya, Jamaica, Trinidad, St. Vincent Island, Romania, Pakistan, and Hungary,

as well as some who grew up in the Crescentville neighborhood and others who are new to the area.

Please know you are welcome to be a part of the change! We invite you to join with us as we seek God’s leading us to be a welcoming place in our community.

Crescentville UMC Youth Challenge

September 26th – November 28th


We are challenging our youth to be active participants in the life of our congregation.  Points will be given for each suggested challenge, and new challenges may be added as we go along.    Prizes will be awarded to all individuals according to the total amount of points they earn during the challenge.

The prizes will be Target gift cards.


These challenges earn 5 points each time they are completed:


  • Attendance at Sunday Worship


  • Bible learning challenge – (example: memorize a verse(s) or name a person in the bible, or who is Jacob?) The bible learning challenge will be based on what is learned in Sunday School.  The learning challenges will be made available to those who are not able to attend.


  • Participate in worship service – (greeter, usher, acolyte, reader, etc)


  • Bring a friend to church (or a relative that doesn’t live with you)


  • Introduce yourself to someone at church whose name you do not know, learn their name and learn one thing about them (example – do they have pets, where were they born, what type of work do they do?)  Be prepared to greet them by name – extra points for remembering their name!


  • Attendance at special church events (examples – Rally Day - Carson Simpson Farms fall event, special youth activities and meetings)


  • Participating in Church maintenance – Joining youth day clean up events (helping with outdoor/indoor clean up), and other tasks as asked.
