Here we are again.  Another year has zipped right by us.  The year that was called 2018, filled with its share of ups and downs.  Many of us experienced great joy and happiness and others dealt with struggles this year.  How was the year for you? I hope and pray that 2018 brought joy and the peace of Christ into your life.  

With the year 2019 before us, what can we expect from God?  We can expect His hand of protection and love to be upon us.  We can expect that He will continue to work in this world for His glory. We can have the faith that God will continue to watch over our family and finances.  The Lord God Almighty is going to continue to do great things in this upcoming year for the Paint Creek UMC.

What are you going to do this upcoming year?  As we go through the winter months, what resolutions or changes are you willing to make in your life?  Many will decide to eat healthier or get more exercise to be in better shape for this summer.  Some will set their minds to saving more money.  Others will devote themselves to spend more time with their families.  All of these are good and necessary, but what kind of decisions or resolutions have you made regarding your walk with the Jesus?    Are you going to be more of an encourager for your spouse, family and co-workers?  Have you been thinking about becoming part of a church family, being in fellowship and Sunday worship?

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.  Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

I quote this passage because the Bible tells us how much our life can be enriched by taking part in a worship service. When it comes to making new resolutions, consider letting one of them be coming to our services at 11:00 every Sunday morning at the historic Paint Creek United Methodist Church. All are welcome here.

Indeed, every new year becomes a new start and a new start sounds good, doesn’t it?  What better time to make a commitment to grow closer to your Savior than with a New Year’s Resolution.   As we enter into 2019, may God’s grace go with you. May His joy fill your souls.  May you know His presence in your life more fully.  May your walk with our Savior Jesus Christ be more fulfilling too.   God bless and we look forward to meeting you in the near future.

Founded in 1855.  In pioneer days, church groups met in homes and later in one-room schools. Revival meetings were held in the Baldwin one-room school on the corner of Gunn and Orion Roads.

Welcome!



​We’re glad you have taken a moment to find the Paint Creek United Methodist Church online and we welcome you to join us for Sunday worship which begins at 11: 00 a.m. We hope you’ll find us to be an encouraging, friendly group of people. While we don’t make any claims to be perfect, we are regularly discovering truths that are changing us individually and enriching our lives as a church community.


In fact, Paint Creek UMC is so good that we think it’s worth sharing!


​​The people in our congregation are like you—trying to find the time and energy to fit everything in each week and to keep life in balance. To do that we’re convinced that we need wisdom and love beyond our own limited capacities. That’s why we set aside time every week to worship God and learn from his book, the Bible. In our Bible study time and worship services both young and old learn principles for successful living that work not only on Sundays, but every other day of the week.

Our History

Another source of strength and joy is the support that we give each other. Lots of encouragement comes from being with people from a variety of backgrounds and interests who care about each other! How helpful it is to listen to the wisdom of older Christians and enjoy the exuberance of all our members. And what a comfort to receive encouragement and support from church friends in time of crisis.
As we worship God, learn from the Bible, and pray for one another, we develop a common bond. Families coming to church together are strengthened in their commitment to God and as well as to each other. And we’re finding new answers to individual and family needs.

All the benefits that we enjoy at our church are based on our commitment to Jesus Christ as our Savior, and the Word of God as our guidebook. Please consider joining us as we enter into a special relationship with God that enables you to face life’s problems and bear them with his aid and the help of his people.
