Welcome to Sumner United Methodist Church (UMC)!

Who We Are

We are a community of faith that seeks to grow in our love of God, serve our neighbors, be a community of inclusion & welcome, transforming the world through Jesus’ love.  We have been in the Sumner community for more than 125 years.

Worship

Worship is celebrating together in community.  Our Sunday 10:00am worship service consists of music, prayer, scripture readings and community time (coffee & snacks), sometimes followed by a service project together. 

Our Beliefs

Sumner UMC is a welcoming Christian community that seeks to love God and neighbors, by offering hospitality, congregational care and community to all. We embrace individuals and families of all gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, races, and economic backgrounds.

We honor the tradition of open minds, open hearts and open doors, seeking to love God and neighbor.  We seek to provide a spiritual home for our congregation and engage in service and ministry to Sumner, Bonney Lake and surrounding communities.

Our congregation affirms the following core values and strategic directions, as expressed in our 2024 strategic planning.
