Welcome to University United Methodist Church!
We are a vibrant congregation in the heart of the City of Lake Charles and have been established as a witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this community for almost 70 years. We look forward to having you join us in worship on a Sunday morning and hope to make your experience as warm and meaningful as possible. If you have questions about what you might experience — such as a description of worship services and learning opportunities and opportunities available for your children — please don’t hesitate to contact the church office or me specifically and schedule your visit.
If this is your first time to worship with us, know that starting in August there is a Coffee with the Pastor the first Sunday of every month at 9:45am in the Pastor’s study, located in the church office wing. This is meant to be an open conversation and opportunity to discuss questions about the mission of University United Methodist Church, the beliefs and practice of our denomination, and a chance for you to meet other Newcomers who may be struggling to find a place to belong like yourself.
I hope you’ll join this amazing community of Christ followers as we continue to remain committed to be "connected, caring" and seek to become a congregation that is "changing the world!"
Peace to you this day,
Rev. Katie McKay Simpson
