In-person and Online Services Every Week

Join us for in-person services every Sunday morning at 10:30am.

At Magnolia UMC, we are a small, inclusive, welcoming community centered on our Love of Christ and striving to be Christ's love and light right here in Magnolia. We come from all ages and backgrounds, striving to lead all who worship with us towards a deeper experience of God's love. We believe each person is beloved of God, created purposefully by God just as they are, and is able to serve others as a minister of God's love wherever they are: at work, at home, and in their neighborhood. We strive in all we do to "act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly."

Pre-recorded services are available each Sunday morning by 8am, here.

Serving Pie and Conversation at Interbay Tiny House Village. Thursdays at 2pm.

A weekly opportunity to serve some of our unhoused neighbors, to talk together, and to live our love out-loud.

We are blessed to have the Interbay Tiny House Village located so near our church. This community, managed by the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) provides secure housing and administers a range of supportive service programs to assist individuals and families who need stable housing and a chance to increase their self-sufficiency. Each Thursday, from 2-3:30pm, we visit the village, serving pie, coffee, and tea, and hanging out with our neighbors.
