Stout Memorial United Methodist Church
We exist to see ALL who feel disconnected from God and the church find hope, healing and wholeness through Jesus Christ.
Join us in WORSHIP
Worship offers an avenue of connections to those who are just beginning to reconnect as well as those who have been working at it for a number of years.
A traditionally formal worship service held at 10:45 on Sunday morning. It features all of the traditions set forth by the Methodist Church at its start.
PRAYER and Worship
Prayer is powerful tool. The most powerful tool that God gave us. One that is sometimes neglected. Join us as we seek to worship God through our prayers. We read the scriptures and meditate on them as we pray over our special needs. Join us on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:00 pm for a special Prayer and Worship Service.
Opportunities for Spiritual Growth
Stout Memorial has many groups that meet to encourage our spiritual growth. We have three adult Sunday school classes that meet on Sunday mornings as well as three youth and children's classes. The Journey and K.I.D.S Life meet on Sundays as well. On Wednesday morning there is a Bible study group that meets at 10:30 and we have several small groups that meet through out the month. If you would like more information just go to our "Growth Opportunities" page, you can find all of the information there.
As another method of spiritual growth, we are now featuring an audio recording of the pastor's sermon on our website. All of the pastor's sermons will be posted in the "Pastor's Blog". You can find this page by clicking the button above or under the "HOME" menu at the top of every page. Each week we will post the audio as well as the scripture that goes with the sermon.
We hope you enjoy listening to the pastor's sermons and that you would share them with your friends on social media.
