About Us

The United Methodist Church, in Stevens Point and Plover, has been growing disciples for Christ since 1856. Christ is the center of our congregational life. The church, its members and friends, have been and are now vital contributors to the fabric of our community where  they work, play, go to school, volunteer. In all things, we seek to have Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors. We believe that we have inherited a great faith legacy from Christian brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, neighbors, friends and faithful strangers that have gone before us. That faith legacy calls us to mature in our faith, to find ways to act justly and to serve those in need.
