More Hope. More Peace. More Love. More Jesus.

Looking for a church that believes in a God who loves ALL people? A church where children are meant to be heard? A church that serves others with joy? You’ve been looking for Alden Community United Methodist Church – and we’ve been looking for you!

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight, filthy rich, dirt poor, si no hablas ni un palabra de Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail, or could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you whether you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor who can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than Mother Teresa, or if you haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.  We especially welcome you if little Joey is a “high spirited” kid or if you or your family member is differently abled.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, and junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, if you’re down in the dumps, or if you don’t like “organized religion” – we’ve been there too.

If you blew all your offering money at the casino, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, love quantum physics, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and YOU!
