Welcome to Sedona United Methodist Church

Temporary Suspension of In-Person Worship

Currently, Covid-19 infection rates in Arizona seem to be increasing at very concerning rates. With the holiday gatherings and events, the rates in Yavapai County have increased significantly. After consultation with several of our leadership and our Administrative Council, we must announce a suspension in our in-person worship (effectively immediately 01/02/21) for a two-to-three-week period in which we hope rates will drop to pre-holiday numbers. Recorded worship will continue to be offered and will be available by our normal Sunday worship time (9:30am).

The Sedona United Methodist Church has been serving Sedona and the Verde Valley for over 40 years. Whether you are a visitor, newcomer or a part of our family, you are invited to share the glory of God with us. Our Spirit filled congregation has become known as one of the friendliest places around Sedona. We invite you to join us this Sunday Morning for in-person or online worship.

Important Information

An Update from Sedona United Methodist Church – Beginning January 2, 2021 – In-Person Sunday Worship is Suspended

Currently, Covid-19 infection rates in Arizona seem to be increasing at very concerning rates. With the holiday gatherings and events, the rates in Yavapai County have increased significantly. After consultation with several of our leadership and our Administrative Council, I sadly must announce a suspension in our in-person worship (effectively immediately 01/02/21) for a two-to-three-week period in which we hope rates will drop to pre-holiday numbers. Recorded worship will continue to be offered by visiting the website and will be available by our normal Sunday worship time (9:30am).

We do not take this action lightly as we know the importance of our ability to gather for worship together in-person. But out of an abundance of caution, and out of love and concern for the health and well-being of our congregation and community, I feel it important to take this action. We will continue to monitor the local and statewide numbers and certainly desire to return to in-person worship just as soon as it is deemed safe and reasonable to do so.

Our office will also be closed to visitors and I would ask for you to call or email Jenny or I if you have any needs—we will be monitoring messages and emails frequently. I also ask that there be no gatherings of multiple individuals at the church facilities (for any reason) without prior consultation with Pastor Fred.

I also would strongly encourage all our congregation to limit your outside contact with others during this time (especially if you do not feel well), wash/sanitize your hands frequently, wear your face coverings, continue to distance, and above all, pray without ceasing!

We will continue communicating more information throughout the coming weeks with updates and answering questions as they arise. Again, I am asking for your patience, grace, and prayers as we continue through these uncertain times. Our church office REMAINS CLOSED — Please contact us via email (sedonaumc.az@gmail.com) or by telephone (928)282-1780.

Grace & Peace,

Pastor Fred
