Giving at Parker UMC
When you give to Parker United Methodist Church you’re giving more than money. You’re helping to create and grow opportunities to invite people to Jesus, affirm their faith and step out into the community to share God’s message of love and compassion. We know that when we all give generously together, the blessings will be multiplied beyond our imagination. There are two buttons below, one to learn more about giving at PUMC, and one to give today!

We worship in our sanctuary every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. It’s a Spirit filled experience as we go to God in prayer, worship, and lifting our voices in songs of praise. Our pastors share scripture based messages for practical living and sharing God’s love in this time, here, today.
We share the live stream of our 9:00 a.m. worship service on our YouTube channel every Sunday. The stream begins at 8:45 a.m. with announcements and pre recorded music by our talented praise team and musical groups.
Like to sleep in? You can join any time during the stream, or watch after the service is over. The video is recorded and saved to our youtube channel.
