Del Ray United Methodist Church is “A Spark in the Heart of Del Ray.” We are honored to offer ourselves in worship and service in the midst of such an amazing community. We strive to be a community church which brings an intimate fellowship to an already vibrant and welcoming neighborhood.
We seek to connect people to God and one another through both enduring
traditions and creative innovations. You can join us as we worship with age-old
hymns during our Sunday service or let your children bring their adults to our
Prayground worship service every 2nd and 4th Sunday. You could greet us as you pass by on "1st Thursdays" along Mt. Vernon Avenue or stop by our annual
dog wash in the summer. Whether it’s a practice that has withstood the test of
time or an exciting new idea, we are always looking for meaningful and faithful
ways to draw people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord.
But we’re not perfect either. As an authentic community, we’re not afraid to admit that our lives aren’t always together the way that we wish they were. We too know the deep wounds of broken relationships, show the scars of recovery, and struggle to be the people we long to be. We confess that we have fallen short of the glory and holiness of God. But thanks be to God through Jesus Christ that He makes broken things beautiful! And so while we are not perfect, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit we are always striving to be. Which is why we have a variety of groups to share the burdens of life together and find a break from the business of our hectic schedules!
Salvation is known in its fullest when our lives are made whole by the love and grace of an ever loving and faithful God. We boldly proclaim the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And in response, we seek to be the body of Christ in Del Ray and in the world. We long that all may know the gift of God’s amazing grace! So come! Wherever you are in your life, let us be part of your journey!
