UPDATE 5/20/2020:



Since mid-March our world became a different place.  We want to worship together again.  We want to be safe.  God knows all of this and more.  Your church leadership team has been in conversation on what our Sunday morning worship will look like going forward.  It will be different than what we have experience before, but we are still called to gather together and remember our Sovereign God and the sacrifice made for each of us.  We are taking steps forward!


On Sunday, June 21st at 9:30 a.m., our summer worship time, we will resume in-person worship! Porter UMC will open with a worship-only strategy which means the building will still be closed to outside groups.  The basement is still closed to outside groups.

If you want to read the full letter explaining our steps we are taking to make meeting face-to-face again, please click here.
