Get to Know Parker UMC

Welcome to Parker United Methodist Church!

We’re so glad you took the time to check us out. Your first point of contact with us will likely be our 9 or 10:30 a.m. worship services. These services offer something for many worship styles and we welcome people from all backgrounds and faith traditions.  Many traditional elements of the United Methodist Church are woven into our service, as well as contemporary music provided by our wonderful fine arts team.

Our pastors work very hard to offer Spirit inspired messages based in scripture and relevant to your lives today, right here in Parker Colorado.

Our outstanding children and youth programs offer opportunities for children age 3 to senior high. Don’t have kids?…are they all grown up? Check out our Bible studies, small groups, mens groups, womens’ groups, moms groups and many other ways to connect! Here’s a link to our class catalog.

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.

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.
