Welcome to the official website of North Olmsted United Methodist Church. We are a local church in the suburban setting of North Olmsted, Ohio. We foster spiritual growth through worship, prayer, and mission. We are an inclusive congregation; all are welcome in our church.
Our building is fully handicap accessible. All rooms are at the same grade level as our parking lot except the upstairs youth rooms. All doors are wide, and we have handicap accessible restrooms.
In-Person Worship is Back!
We are excited to announce that we are now hosting in-person worship! The doors open at 10:10 a.m. for the 10:30 a.m. service. We will continue to offer livestreamed and recorded worship along with the in-person experience.
Updated In-Person Worship Guidance
The Reopening Team met recently to discuss and make decisions that will reflect ways in which we can continue to worship safely in-person while respecting information about fewer risks pertaining to COVID-19 as gleaned from the State of Ohio’s Governor’s office, federal authorities, The East Ohio Conference of The UMC, and medical science organizations. As such, please note the following practices for in-person worship (subject to possible change in the future as the Reopening Team continues to be attentive to any new patterns of the Virus and information from aforementioned professionals):
Facilities: The main entrance doors, parking lot entrance door, hallways, sanctuary, fellowship hall, and all restrooms will be open beginning at 10:10am.
Masks: Masks will be optional for those who are fully vaccinated.
Sign-in: Please continue to sign-in for worship at the tables in fellowship hall near the sanctuary entrance. You may also pick up bulletins and submit prayer cards at the tables. The offering plate will continue to be made available near the back of the sanctuary.
Seating and Social Distancing: All rows for seating will be available. However, please allow 2 empty seats between individuals, couples, or family groups for safe distancing. Please also respect safe distancing as you enter and leave the church.
Passing the Peace of Christ: We will continue to experience this time of worship from our seats with the friendly and joyful exchange of greetings made known through our faith in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
Singing: We will continue to experience music without singing by listening, reading the lyrics of hymns and songs, and experiencing visual imagery displayed through the church’s new audio-video equipment.
Fellowship: Please continue to offer fellowship with one another outside the church building before and after the worship service. A special time of fellowship will be offered after worship in the parking lot this Sunday, June 13 in honor of our graduates and those who serve as leaders and teachers for Christian Education in the life of the church. Other outdoor fellowship gatherings are being considered and discussed by members of the church for the months of July and August.
Sacrament of Holy Communion (July and August): Small individual containers of communion elements and paper napkins will be placed on the sign-in tables BEFORE THE SERVICE for worshippers to pick up on their way to the sanctuary. The Sacrament will be shared together during the time of worship. A waste basket will be made available near the back of the sanctuary at the end of the service to discard empty containers and napkins.
Virtual Worship Materials
In addition to in-person services, we will continue to live stream services every Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. on YouTube!
