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.

On Tuesday evenings during lent starting on February 20th

please Join Crescentville UMC as we "Struggle to the Cross".

We will be meeting every Tuesday night on Zoom from 7:30-8:30pm to discuss a selection from the book by UMC Bishop Sharma Lewis "Struggle to the Cross". You can show up on zoom without a book and we will read and discuss a passage together. If you'd prefer to purchase a book you can do so and follow along and make it a daily practice. This is going to be a journey where we really get to know each other, our inside selves, and God. All ages are welcome! The zoom link will be sent out by text and email, and the link is also available on our website. 

The study will be recorded and the video posted afterwards

We are encouraged to read the scriptures as we live through the many changes and challenges we face today in our world. The Word of God NEVER changes, because Jesus Christ never changes!

For daily devotions throughout lent, please check out the Luther Seminary Education website.

                            You can sign up for devotions to be sent directly to your email.
