Bring your family to share in meaningful worship with our faith community.





Dear Friends,
We who make up the congregation of Crete United Methodist Church are continuing a journey begun in 1841. The earliest Methodist services were held in Crete just 5 years after the founding of the village.
Right now we are in the midst of a revitalization process that is preparing us to serve our community and our world better in this new millennium. With our newly constructed worship center (we began worshiping there June, 1999), our renewed campus, and our growing congregation; we are deepening our commitment to fulfill our God-given mission.
We invite you to come and share with us in the excitement of these days. To proclaim the Good News of what God has done for us in Jesus Christ, to model the Christian lifestyle, and to work for reconciliation and justice in our world are the things that direct our efforts.
Come and see what God is doing and discover what God has in store for you.
We hope to see you soon,
The People of Crete United
Methodist Church
