Sunday - 4PM
Welcome to Battle Ground Community United Methodist Church!
Like God's love, our welcome is unconditional
To all, including those who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination from church or in society, we offer a place of welcome, respect, and love. It is in this spirit that we invite ALL* people to join us on a journey of faith.
*As a reconciling congregation, ALL people are welcome including people of any race, sexual orientation, gender identity, faith history, socioeconomic status, physical and mental ability.
Starting in January:
- Sabbath -
The church will be open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 9-11am for Sabbath time. We'll have opportunities for spiritual practices, board games, just sitting with a cup of tea - whatever is restful for you. You can bring a book or magazine to read, art supplies, a journal, a camera, a pillow... or just yourself!
Simplify your time with the gift of the Sabbath!
