We are so blessed to have guests visiting with us each week. I want to invite you to join me for Coffee with the Pastor. We will gather on Sunday, October 22 at 11:30 am in the Library. We’d love to be your church family!

Coffee with the Pastor is designed to help you discover the values and beliefs of this church and the United Methodist denomination in a casual setting. I believe in this church and its’ ministry. When we find the right church family and make a commitment, we grow in our closeness to God, we learn to love our neighbor, and to walk as a child of God. I pray that you find that place of connection that will draw you closer to God.

If you have questions, concerns, or plan to attend, please give me a call or text: 810.488.2390. Or email:revmaureen@mountclemensumc.org.

Small Group Meetings with Rev. Maureen Baker

Meet Reverend Maureen

Rev. Maureen is so excited to get to know her new congregation!  She has asked if it would be possible to schedule a number of small group meetings in homes or at church in order to get to know us, listen to our hopes and dreams, anxieties and fears as together, we transition into her new ministry.  There are sign-up sheets in the multi-purpose room for those wishing to attend a group meeting.  We hope everyone will take this opportunity to get acquainted with our new Pastor.

If you are able to host one of these small, informal coffee and dessert meetings, please sign up on the calendar in the multi-purpose room or contact Wendy in the office.  Please indicate the location (church or home), the time, and number of people you can accommodate.
