SPLAT
(Seeking, Praising, Learning, Asking, Teaching)

SPLAT is our CUMC youth group (grades 7-12) growing in faith together through seeking, praising, learning, asking and teaching. We meet on Sundays from 11:30 - 1 p.m. SPLAT is for youth in the church and in the community – come join us!

Youth combine fun activities and social time; spiritual formation; Bible study (reading scripture and relating it to their daily lives and concerns); mission opportunities; and encounters with God in the community. Through participation and study youth also prepare for confirmation (generally in their 9th grade year) if desired. SPLAT is an open and honest time of discovery, exploration and learning. 

SPLAT also meets on Sunday mornings from 8:30-11:30 am for Brew Crew, a Christian-based youth coffee shop serving the congregation homemade treats and fair trade coffee. Youth have fun together while gaining valuable work experience and earning funds to go on mission trips. Brew Crew was started by some of our youth, who learned about the importance of fair trade and wanted to bring it home to Coralville UMC and our members.   

Examples of other SPLAT activities include an annual trip to Winter jam in Des Moines (a night of praise and music performances by top Christian artists, attended by more than 10,000 youth), kernel games, local mission work, local Christian concerts, a yearly mission trip, church lock-ins and an annual Christmas party/dinner.

Don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young, but teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, and by integrity. –1 Timothy 4:12

What's New

On Sunday, December 11, CUMC is once again offering a soup supper in conjunction with Coralville's Annual Aisle of Lights.


Here are some of the ongoing activities available at CUMC.

Kids.Connect is available for all children, preschool-6th grade.  Children begin in the sanctuary at 9:30 a.m. to worship with their families. They will listen to the weekly Kids.Connect message, and then be dismissed to their classroom around 9:45. Parents will have time for a quick cup of coffee or treat after worship before collecting children from their classroom at 10:45 a.m.

We believe children should be seen AND heard.  We welcome children of all ages in worship on Sunday mornings!

SPLAT! Youth Group meets weekly on Sundays immediately following worship. Join us for a time of learning, serving, sharing, and fun!  All youth, grades 7 – 12, are invited to take part.

Coffee and Conversation, a Grief/Care Giver Support Group meets every 1st and 3rd Sunday at 10:30 am.

Choirs rehearse weekly every Tuesday evening. Under the direction of Jared Shulse, Bell choir meets at 5:45 pm and Celebration at 7:00 pm.  New voices and/or ringers are always welcome, so feel free to join the choirs as they prepare to “make a joyful noise.”

Brew Crew Fellowship after worship every Sunday in the Community Room.  Come share a hot beverage, a sweet treat, and a story or two with friends, old and new.


Our building is open and all are welcome to attend worship in-person at Coralville UMC! Our worship is on Sunday mornings at 9:30.  To all who are joining us for the first time, welcome!

We will continue streaming live from Facebook on Sunday mornings at 9:30 as well. All are welcome! You can find our Facebook page by clicking the icon at the top of this website. Or, you can find it here: Facebook CoralvilleUMC

Regarding our mask guidance, in keeping with the City of Coralville and Iowa City Community School District, we will follow the new CDC guidelines at our church. Please take good care of yourselves and be loving and respectful toward one another, understanding that our personal health and personal levels of comfort will differ.

We are reserving the group of pews on the far right of the sanctuary as you are facing the altar for those who choose to be especially cautious about masking.
