The staff of Stout Memorial has been working diligently to bring our Sunday morning worship to our congregation while they are unable to gather in the church building. We have developed several methods for our congregants to partake in the worship service.
Facebook Live Stream
Every Sunday at 10:45 am, we will be broadcasting our worship service on our Facebook page. By joining on Facebook you will be able to see and hear the worship service as if you were actually there. You will also be able to comment and reply on the post with the other members who are watching with you. No facebook account is required to join the live stream, simply go to facebook.com/StoutMemorialUMC at 10:45 am on Sunday mornings to join us in worship.
Listen on Your Radio in our Parking Lot
For our members of Stout Memorial who are unable to join the live stream on Facebook we have begun to broadcast our worship service over the radio into our parking lot. All you will have to do is pull into a parking space and tune your radio to 88.1. The best place to hear the service is in the rear parking lot by the Family Life Center (A.K.A. The Gym). You may need to shut off the cars engine to receive the signal as our transmitter is a very low power to avoid violating FCC regulations.
We would ask that you please reserve this method for the members of our congregation who are unable to view the live stream on Facebook.
We thank you all very much for your patience and support during this time. We are always striving to do the absolute best when it comes to worshiping our God and Savior. We look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday, whether it is through our Facebook stream or your joining us in the parking lot to listen.
Don't forget you can view the order of worship bulletin for the service on our website at stoutmemorial.org/1045bulletin. You can see how to continue giving here.
Blessings and peace,
Your Pastor and Staff
During this time of separation, we have come up with a few ways for you to continue to support the church through your gifts and pledges. Listed below are some ways you can continue to give:
Stacy and Pastor Cindy will be Live on Facebook @ 10 am for “Soul Reset” Lenten Study. Facebook.com/stoutmemorialumc; Even if you don’t currently have a facebook account, you can go to link and watch.
Please expand your 8am & 8pm prayer to include the community, our world, as well as our church.
The Church is open for prayer, if you would like to come and pray please feel free to do so. We have plenty of space to spread out and be safe. If you have a key, come in and pray. If you would like a key, contact Cindy or Stacy.
Cindy and Stacy are in the office from 8:30 to noon, afternoon times vary.
When it’s hard for the church to come together in worship and fellowship with God and each other, it becomes very easy for us to become discouraged or feel cut off. But, in today’s world, with all of the technology we have available, the church can continue to thrive.
Our church offers a powerful resource that some of you may not have begun utilizing, Rightnow Media. Rightnow Media offers hundreds of bible study resources for adults, children, couples, college students, and everyone in between. All you have to do is sign up through our website at stoutmemorial.org/growthopportunities, it’s free.
Facebook has many ways for the small groups and Sunday school classes to stay connected with each other.
There are many possibilities for the church to remain connected and thrive in these times of separation. We don’t have to be in the same room, the same building, or even the same state to remain connected to God and each other, we just have to keep an open mind and an open heart and God will always find a way to fill each of us with his Holy Spirit.

We have been getting questions about how to get your offerings to the church. The bills do still have to be paid and we truly appreciate your concern.
