​A message from our Bishop Matthews​
​W​e all must repent for any harm that our collective actions or words might have on the LGBTQ community, in this tragedy, and beyond. That is why all God-loving people must condemn this tragedy for what it was: a hate crime against the LGBTQ community. As people of faith, we are called not to judge people, but to love them. I pray this love will begin to offer healing in all the forms it is needed.

And for this moment, let us also just lift our broken hearts to God. Let us, together, seek the peace that passes all understanding, healing for our nation that seems too often divided, and acceptance for all of God’s children. We cry out in pain and disbelief. We mourn. We lift our hearts unto the Lord, and pray, confident that God hears each of our prayers, certain that God can overcome the hatred and the darkness that threatens. Let us be God’s light to the world as we find our hope in Christ, our Lord and our Redeemer.

How We Support Our Community

• Sunday Services usually last a little over an hour. We describe our worship style at Pleasant Grove UMC as “blended.” We sing both traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs.
• Come As You Are
• Dress however you like. At Pleasant Grove UMC you’ll see blue jeans and three-piece suits alike.
• Bring the Kids
• We provide an relevant children's education time that runs concurrent with worship after the children and youth are dismissed from the main worship. A children’s sermon is incorporated into the main worship service.
• Fellowship
• Coffee and snacks are part of our Hospitality Hour provided in the Tracey Building immediately after Worship and Sunday School hour.
