Scripture reminds us:

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; and we have beheld his glory, as of the only Son of the Father.” John 1:14

The season of Advent and the beauty of Christmas is now upon us. It is at this special time of year we are surrounded by all the decorations of  Christmas lights, nativity scenes and music. Christmas is a busy time but it is a wonderful time of year for all ages.

Pastor Marvin's Welcome Letter

7 Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.   Romans 15:7

What a joy it is to introduce you to our church! You'll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can worship, enjoy fellowship and most of all,  experience with God.

​At the Paint Creek United Methodist Church, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. Just come as you are and together we will share our Christian journey through our down to earth teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we'd like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.

Our Congregation


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.

Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors Since 1855

So, whether you're a spiritual seeker who's just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to use your gifts in guiding others to the life changing experience found in Jesus Christ, you can find a home here at the Paint Creek United Methodist Church.

We are all on a path leading to us in all directions, with God, our family, friends, and our world ... Join us, as we dare to make your pathways a little less steep and much more smoother on that journey. How exciting it will be. We invite you to worship with us this Sunday!

In the meantime, you'll find everything you need right here on the Paint Creek UMC website. Use this site to check out our ministries, find information on our church, or read about what's going on around the church.

Enjoy, and please contact us if you have any questions.

God bless you,

Our History

In ancient times our ancestors gazed at the skies and pondered the story of divine presence that was to come. Then and now, the message of Christmas is that God is present in our laughter and love as well as in our times of sadness and joy. In the Christmas  story, we find hope in the infant child Jesus laying in the manger where God came down to be among us and to walk beside us.

With the birth of the Christ child as our main focus, the congregation of the historic Paint Creek United Methodist Church  wish to extend to you and yours, a warm welcome to come and join us for worship. Together, let us walk with each other throughout the Advent season leading up to Christmas Day.  Our weekly Sunday services begins at 11:00 a.m. So, please come and  enjoy the beauty of our quaint church, the songs of Christmas as well as listening to the special music we have planned too. Then on Christmas Eve, December 24, we will gather at 8:00 p.m. for worship, music and a candle light service.

We would love to have your family, friends and you personally come and join us this season.  Merry Christmas and may you be blessed throughout the holidays.

- Pastor Marv Herman, Deb, Rachel and Meredith.
