New COVID guidelines are now in effect for Worship in the Sanctuary
Note from Pastor Mekeal: After consultation with San Juan Basin Health and Rhonda Webb at Pagosa Medical Health our Administrative Council has decided to open again for in-house worship. We look forward to our time together again. We will be requesting those who are not vaccinated to please wear a mask, those who have been vaccinated may chose to not wear or to wear a mask according to their preference. If you are not wearing a mask in the service you are requested to not sing out loud. If you wish to sing, please wear a mask during the hymns. We will continue our email services as well for those who would like to continue worship from home. Our prayer continues to be seeking God's will and direction in all of this. God's best as we seek to be God's people in this place.
In santuary, SUNDAY SERVICES are at 8:15AM AND 11:00AM
There is no preregistration required and contact tracing with the new guidelines.
If during the coming weeks you should feel ill with COVID19 symptoms, receive test results, showing exposure, or is you are notified of potential COVID19 exposure, we ask that you contact the CUMC church office at (970) 264-5508 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If we need to contact other participants regarding a potential COVID19 exposure, YOUR NAME WILL NOT BE SHARED WITH ANYONE.
Please take one of the information cards with you when you leave, so that you have the church contact information and you know where to conduct sanitation.
May God Bless you and family always, especially during these unsettled times.
Community United Methodist Church has been serving the community of Pagosa Springs and Archuleta County in Colorado for over 100 years. The original church was built in 1897 and the current facility was constructed in 1968 with an education wing and chapel added in 1986. In 2009 the sanctuary building was remodeled, including a new roof and facade on the front of the church. A bell tower similar to that of the original church was added.
The purpose of the Community United Methodist Church is to celebrate in, communicate about, and witness to the Love of Christ in our church, community and world. Our services are planned to provide a special worship experience to everyone. The early service is non-traditional, offering contemporary music, while the late service has a more traditional format. with music shared by our chancel choir.

Sunday School classes meet weekly for all ages. Currently the young children are reading Bible Stories, and they do a craft or art project that is related to each story. They also learn songs and games, have a snack, and share a time of prayer before leaving. Two adult classes are offered with a variety of subjects and formats. Bible Study courses are held several times throughout the year. Check the Education Page for details.
“I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”
Praying: Entrust us again with the gospel of Jesus Christ, that we may love you with all our being and our neighbors as ourselves. We would risk opposition to serve you faithfully. We want to identify with the poor and oppressed for whom you have special compassion. Guide us by your word to share ourselves, along with your good news.
