Welcome to






Methodist Temple strives to be a safe, nonjudgmental community in Jesus' name. We live out this vision by nurturing life-giving connections, practicing generous givenness, and cultivating presence to the Presence of God.  

Based on Mayor Winnecke's recent directive, masks will be REQUIRED when entering the building beginning Sunday, July 12.

Re-Opening: Plan of action

As of June 14, we are meeting for in-person worship on Sunday mornings at

8:30 AM and 11:00 AM.

If you're joining us for the first time since the shutdown due to COVID-19, please check out our "What to Expect" video on our Messages & Media page for helpful information.



Due to the swiftly changing nature of the COVID-19 crisis, all information and dates in this plan could change. Also, per our governor's guidance we want to encourage everyone to wear face masks (not only is this good practice, it serves as a witness to others).

Our Podcast

In response to the COVID-19 virus and the shut-down it created, our pastors, Pastor Andy and Pastor JillAnn, began their mid-week podcast as a way to stay in touch with our Methodist Temple family and 'keep the conversation going,' so to speak.  We hope you enjoy their podcasts!
