Visiting a new church for the first time can be fun, but it can also be intimidating or a bit overwhelming.  Here are a few things we hope will make it easier for you.  If you want to come to Christ UMC, but still have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to Contact Pastor Rachael!

  • A Map of our location is at the bottom of our home page.  We are located on a frontage road along Highway 94.  If you’re driving next to a freeway noise reduction wall between McKnight and Century, you’re on the right track!  We’re directly across the highway from the big 3M campus in Maplewood.
  • Parking is available all around the church building.  Park anywhere you wish!
  • Accessibility is important to us!  Our front entrance (the glass doors under the giant cross) is accessible and leads directly to the sanctuary.  Drop off can be done right at the door, and accessible parking is available.  If you park in the rear of the building, follow the sidewalk to the glass door entrance.  You’ll find stairs up to a gathering area with the Sanctuary on your right.  We do have a lift system that provides access to both levels of the building and an accessible restroom near the sanctuary.
  • Wear what makes you comfortable.  You’ll see everything from suits and dresses to jeans in worship at Christ UMC.  The overall vibe of worship services is friendly and casual.  We care about who you are, not what you wear!
  • Worship at 10:30am on Sundays is currently fairly traditional, but every now and then a twist keeps us on our feet.  We often engage the arts in worship. We invite you to see how we do things and, if you have ideas or a passion in a new direction, we hope you’ll share it with us!  We are open to the movement of the Holy Spirit among us and excited to learn from and grow with you.
  • Our vision is to be a community church. To us, that means that we see beyond our walls and love our neighbors! We want our community to be safe and healthy for all the people who live here, and we seek out partnerships that help us contribute and to be good neighbors.
  • We are a United Methodist Congregation!  For more about what United Methodists believe, check out http://www.umc.org/what-we-believe OR come to worship for a few weeks and get to know what we believe by the way we worship and live!  Feel free to Contact Pastor Rachael if you have questions about our beliefs.
  • ALL are Welcome at Christ UMC.  You are welcome at Christ UMC.
