If you’re joining us for worship today, in person or online, please sign in below so we can get to know you a little better. Thank you.
In Person Worship
Our in person worship services are Sunday mornings at 9 and 10:30 am.
Just sign in online or sign in with our welcome team on Sunday mornings.
This helps us connect with new visitors, and attendance requirements with the United Methodist Church denomination and we need your help to accomplish this.
Masks are still required in our building for unvaccinated individuals and for everyone in the common areas during our preschool hours of 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. M-F.
Online Worship Service
Every Sunday we live stream our 9 a.m. service to our YouTube channel and Facebook page. The live stream begins at approximately 8:45 a.m. and includes a special message just for our online viewers. The video will also be available after service is over, so you can watch any time!
Weekly Conversations with Our Facebook Group
Are you on Facebook? Then join us every Wednesday afternoon. One of our pastors will be LIVE to talk further about the past Sunday’s sermon and how we can continue to grow in our faith.

How do I make a prayer request?
- Email your prayer request; to Barb Sholis, Senior Pastor, or Cody Anderson, Associate Pastor. Since these go directly to our pastoral leadership, it’s one of the best ways to keep your prayer confidential.
- We’ve recently created our very own Parker UMC App. It just takes a few clicks to submit a request. Search Parker UMC in your App Store or Google Play to download. Confidential and non-confidential options are available.
- You also have the option of submitting a prayer request right here to our secure online form. You’ll have the option to share it with the congregation, or keep it confidential–only our pastoral staff will see it.
What We Believe
As United Methodists, we believe in a triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who has mercy and love for all people. We use four guides to understand and explain our faith: scripture, tradition, reason and experience.
We believe we are part of the church universal and that we, along with other Christian denominations, are authentic witnesses of God through Jesus Christ. We live this out in Baptism as we accept the validity of Baptism of other Christian denominations. We also live this out in our practice of the Open Table at Holy Communion where all persons are welcome as they seek to follow Christ and live in peace with their neighbor.
Faith is necessary for the Christian Life and is received through God’s grace and is seen and experienced through acts of piety and mercy. Faith without works does not exist.
We welcome you wherever you are on your faith journey, and we invite you to grow spiritually toward full humanity through the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We encourage you to become an active part of our faith community through your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.
