Welcome to Community UMC
We are a church who is currently focused both on what it takes to be the church now and the church for generations to come! We believe that being United Methodist in today’s world is an opportunity to show the world what it means to be grounded in the world and in our faith for generations while at the same time looking forward learning, growing and developing in ways that speak to our children and our children’s children.
We have an accessible church which allows to seek being “accessible” not only physically, but internally and spiritually. Things come and go, but we believe that the love of God and the call to justice, compassion, love and mercy extends beyond our walls out into the community, that we may understand as well as illustrate what the Kingdom of God really is about.
Who we are…
At Community United Methodist you will find us alive and well, a church seeking not only its present, but its future! We believe that God desires for us to be alive and engaged in our world for the long haul. As such we see to be a church that invites and welcomes all, encourages all and engages all. As a result we are intergenerational, we are politically diverse but as one we all seek to live and develop our faith in ways that honor God and the mission of Jesus Christ. We are a people who are serious enough about our faith to ask questions, seek wisdom from scripture, one another and God. It’s an exciting time at Community UMC as we are looking long into the future and actively seeking what it will take for us as a church and as individuals to be a vital part of the Coeur d’Alene Community.
What we believe…
As United Methodists we hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time looking to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion.
Methodists have been known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We have historically valued well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that was lively, and small groups where people could grow in faith.
Methodists have open hearts, and open minds–and welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith.
