Mercer Island United Methodist
Church (MIUMC) is a joyful, warm and engaging congregation located on the
northeast side of Mercer Island near Seattle, WA. Formed in 1962, our congregation is full of women, men and youth who are
enthusiastically growing in relationship to Jesus Christ and to each
other in ways that propel us into ministries that reveal God’s love to
people on Mercer Island and well beyond.
Through our upbeat and
stimulating worship services, MIUMC members and friends (including
children!) are strengthened and challenged to live out the teachings of
Jesus in every avenue of their lives. During Sunday School, and mid-week
Bible study sessions or “tables of learning,” we explore the Bible,
probe complex social and global issues, and exchange ideas in a safe and
respectful environment. Our learning enriches our lives as we seek to
live as people who know God’s word and are committed to being “doers of
God’s word.” As a talented and imaginative congregation, we are involved
in hands on ministries that include a partnership in shaping young minds
and hearts through Seattle’s Atlantic Street Center.
We are also involved with the
Emergency Feeding Program of
Seattle and King County.
In an average year, the Emergency
Feeding Program of Seattle & King County provides more than 430,000
healthy and nutritionally balanced meals to about 70,000 individuals and
families throughout King County.
As a multigenerational
congregation, we find joy in sharing meals with each other, and in
laughing with each other during times of fun. In addition, we
are enthusiastic supporters of two important ecumenical agencies, the
Washington Association of Churches and the Church Council of Greater
Seattle, while enjoying strong ecumenical and interfaith partnerships
with Jewish and Christian congregations on Mercer Island.
Finally, as we know that our
lives and collective well-being are inextricably linked to our
relationship with God through Jesus Christ, we are people who frequently
and fervently pray for and with each other and for people around the
world, with hopes that God’s healing love, peace, justice and joy will
be experienced by all.
We are in the heart of Mercer
Island with Mercer Island, our larger community and world in our heart.
