Hey there! We are super excited to welcome you to Canyon Lake United Methodist Church! We often refer to Canyon Lake United Methodist Church as CLUMC. We're a bit biased, but CLUMC is an awesome place. If you're looking, please know we'd be honored to be your church home! We have two uniquely gifted pastors and a wonderful team of staff and servants who make CLUMC a fun place to worship, grow, and serve. Welcome!
PARKING AND MAIN DOOR: There is parking both above and below the church. The main parking lot is on top and that will get you closest to the main doors which are marked by the word "Sanctuary." Wheelchair accessible parking is available.
WHAT'S FOR KIDS? Kids are welcome in worship all the time and anytime; their wiggles are just fine with us! But, if you feel more comfortable, Mrs. Erin, our amazing Children's Coordinator, always has the nursery (The Ark) available during both services and Sunday school, as well as Children's Church. Erin also leads both Sunday School and Wednesday Jam for preschool - 5th graders. For more information, you can click here or contact Erin.
Children's time is offered at all Sunday services. At each service, Erin offers a special message just for kids. It's always themed to match the pastor's message that day - but in a way that kids can relate to!
Children's Church is available at both services. Following the Children's Time, Erin and a helper will lead the kids downstairs for fun and learning. Kids will be brought back after the message. Your kids can stay in worship or head with Erin - the choice is yours.
Sunday School is offered during the school year at 9:30 AM for children and adults of all ages. Learn more.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS? Any way you want! Some come in shorts and jeans or dresses or causal pants and others in more formal attire. Whatever makes you comfortable - we're okay with that. You'll most often see our pastors in jeans.
DO I HAVE TO WEAR A MASK? We are following current CDC guidelines, which means if you're fully vaccinated - you don't! However, we know that some folks still feel most comfortable in masks, so please know that they're always welcome. Please know that while we follow CDC guidelines, we trust that, however you come, you are making the best decision for you and your family and we respect your choices.
WHAT'S THE NEWER BIG BUILDING? That's the Christian Life Center (CLC). The Middle School and High School youth have their spaces in that building along with a kitchen, gym, showers, fellowship space, a few classrooms, and a chapel.
NEXT STEPS? If you've decided that CLUMC is your church (yeah!) or want to learn more, you'll want to attend our Discipleship Pathway. This is a 10-week small group that is offered in both the fall and spring semesters. Learn more here or by contacting Pastor Brett.
