Why CUMC?

Life can be complicated and demanding, we know. We all face pressures, obligations, burdens and disappointments – even as we celebrate life’s joys and transitions. It’s easy to become overwhelmed, exhausted or discouraged.

At the same time, our culture is becoming more individualistic and opportunities for community are harder to find. Yet we all need encouragement. We need someone to say, “I love you, I believe in you, I accept you.” The good news of our Christian faith is that ours is a God of acceptance and encouragement. When the world threatens to rip our hearts out, God is there to put heart back into us, to re-light the spark and give us new life.

At Coralville UMC we accept and recognize the holy within you. Our hope is that you may know Christ’s love for you, and that you will walk with us as we help one another grow to become the very hands and feet of Jesus in this world. We may not be perfect at this, but our hearts and minds are always focused on these goals. The mission of the United Methodist Church is Making Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World. Together we are committed to transforming the world, one broken life at a time.

At Coralville UMC we affirm people of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, gender identities, sexual orientations, physical and mental abilities, and socio-economic status. We believe that prejudice, hatred, or discrimination directed toward any individual or group is contrary to the life and spirit of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, we shall work to eliminate prejudice and discriminatory practices within ourselves and our community, and to show grace, in Jesus’ name.

We stand together in solidarity with the family of George Floyd and with people of color in our congregation, our communities, and around the world.
