SUMC’s Covid-19 Updates

During this time we want to stay connected with the Sterling UMC Community. Below are the ways in which Sterling UMC is approaching the Covid-19 situation and how we want to stay connected with you during this time!

Right now, the best way to stay up to date with Sterling UMC is by following us on facebook and checking your email for our church wide updates. If you do not receive those updates, you can sign up here. If you already subscribe to our list but are not receiving these updates, be sure to check your junk or spam folders – sometimes our emails can get lost in those places.

We want to encourage you that God is in control – even over this virus. Take time to connect with each other and with God in new and different ways. We are still able to form community and connections right now – it just may look a little different at times. Please know that we are here for you and your family during this time and do not hesitate to reach out with concerns, prayer requests, or needs – we are a church for our community.

Children’s Ministry

We want to stay connected with you! Heather Toth, our Children’s Director, will continue posting Children’s Ministry resources on the Sterling Kid’s and Youth Facebook Page – join today!

Youth Ministry

Our Youth Group is holding in person Youth Group on Sundays from 6:30 to 8:00 pm (Note, the summer schedule is not every week). All youth are asked to pre-register in order to attend. Please email for more information.

Church Office

The hours that the building is open have been reduced due to the reduction in church activities and to limit contact.  The church office is currently open from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
