Love · Grow · Serve
At Coralville United Methodist Church we believe that we are all children of God, created by God with our many differences, and that all are welcome at God’s table. We are an inter-generational, diverse community that is grounded in God’s unconditional love, committed to helping one another grow, and devoted to serving God’s people by working for justice and peace.
Whether young or old, rich or poor, filled with hope or despair, seeker or skeptic, we have a place for you at our table. We are a church that accepts you as you are and challenges you to grow further, while offering the support of a caring community of people who are on that same journey toward God. Wherever you are in that journey – whatever your faith tradition may be – you are always welcome at Coralville United Methodist Church!
Join us for a heart and tummy warming bowl of soup!
The word Advent means "coming" or "arrival." The season of Advent (marked by the four Sundays leading to Christmas Eve) celebrates the revelation of God through Jesus Christ, both past and future. Advent is about hope – not only hope for better days and less suffering in the world, but also hope that our existence has meaning beyond our present experiences and beyond even our imagination. It is the hope that God will come and come again into our world, revealed as a God of possibility and new things.

United Methodists value open hearts and open minds. We believe in engaging faith and how it speaks to our world today, and that science and religion are not mutually exclusive. We are open in our exploration of our faith.
Right now, adults at Coralville UMC are exploring their personal spirituality on a journey called Pathways. Read more about it here.
